It was a bit brisk outside but inside Old Lyme High School there was fever pitch excitement. The robotics teams from various schools had gathered for the annual First Lego League robotics competition and DL&AMMS was well represented. 

They were not kids or students, but designers, programmers, engineers and project managers. During the presentations and robot runs, they demonstrated true professionalism and commitment to a purpose. Each of the three teams excelled in displaying their passion for their projects and respect for each other. Continuously, the team members encouraged one another to overcome obstacles. Each group had a team leader whose job was made easier by the willingness of each team member to do whatever was necessary to be successful.

The teams were Dark Knights, Minnie Mice
, and Ratatouilles. All parents, teachers and students can be proud of the impression left by our robotics group.  The robotics coach, Fini, has a remarkable way of preparing the teams and helping each member make the most of their abilities. She is definitely making a strong, enriching impact on the kids lives. Thank you Coach Fini.
