Two First Lego League teams from Evans Middle School presented their projects to the Ottumwa Board of Education on November 18. The teams will compete in regional competition at Indian Hills Community College on December 14.

Every year, FIRST LEGO League releases a challenge. This year's challenge is "City Shaper." The contest challenges teams of students to work on projects that could have a positive impact on their community. Each competition has three parts:  the Robot Game, the Innovation Project, and Core Values. Teams of up to 10 students program a robot, develop a solution to an identified problem, guided by FIRST Core Values.
