    Future STEM leaders use problem-solving skills to design robots and make schools safer

    The all-girls team “Infinity Builders” comprised of students from Lake Washington School District and Northshore School District participated in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) for Washington on December 15. FLL’s mission is to inspire youth to build on their passions and to prepare them to be STEM leaders of the future. The challenge this year was to identify a problem in a public space in the local community and to come up with an innovative solution. The Infinity Builders researched gun safety in schools and communities and proposed an effective solution.
    The team won the Champions Award in the qualifiers round by embracing the FLL’s “core values while achieving excellence and innovation in both the Robot Game and Design, and the Innovation Project.” The girls are very excited about the opportunity to further enhance their robot design and gun safety solution for the semifinals in Jan 2020, as well as share their research with the school districts.
