Collecting Trophies at the Grandville JrFLL Tournament

Yesterday a dozen JrFLL teams joined more than 40 FIRST Lego League teams at Grandville High School for the second annual Grandville JrFLL Expo. This year’s event, hosted by That ONE Team and the Grandville RoboDawgs, was West Michigan’s only showcase for Junior Lego League teams, made up of second and third grade students. In the 2013 DISASTER BLASTER Challenge, teams learned about natural disasters like earthquakes, tornados, and floods. They also learned about simple machines as they built a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized moving part and created a team Show Me Poster to represent their findings.

Teams, and the awards they received at this event include:
Solid-as-a-Rock Model Design Award – Team 997 The Flood Four
Construction Innovation Award – Team 2113 Swirling Tornados
