Crestline Lego League Wins Award at State

  • 3…2…1…LEGO! These words were heard many times Saturday 3/5 at Fort Payne High School as the Crestline Cool Coders competed in the First Lego League (FLL) State Championship. FLL is a global program open to grades 4-8. After winning the Champion’s Award at the Southern Railway qualifier, the Cool Coders felt confident going into State. Our rookie team of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders walked away with the Robot Performance award by outscoring 23 teams in a series of timed challenges. This is the first State-level award for Crestline in FLL. Congrats to all!
