SUMMIT, NJ - Kent Place School's Primary and Middle School robotics team, carrying the moniker of the 'Mini Robo-Dragons', recently competed in their First Lego League (FLL) competition at the Liberty Science Center. 

During the competition, teams presented their research of a real-world problem related to this year's theme “Animal Allies,” the ways in which people and animals interact.

The 'Mini Robo-Dragon' project was the creation of a guard to protect sea creatures, such as turtles and manatees, from getting caught in a boat's propeller. 

The team presented their robot design and game strategy, demonstrated their ability to work as a team, and problem-solve a STEM task, and competed on a table-top playing field where their robot ran through an obstacle course autonomously.
