Granary project sends LEGO team to sectionals

Give a trio of Southern Door Middle School Students time and some LEGOs and maybe they could craft a plan for the future of Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator. That was the hope as Avery VanRemortel, Spencer Slezewski, and Hailey Veeser competed at Lakeshore Technical College in Cleveland, Wisconsin in the FIRST LEGO League regional competition. In addition to programming a Mindstorms EV3 robot to complete missions, Door County’s only LEGO team tackled the granary as a building or public space in the community with an issue that needed to be solved. Mentor Tracy Slezewski says the team of eighth-graders came up with some interesting ideas.

The presentation of the ideas and their programming abilities were good enough to earn the team a berth into sectionals, which will be held next month in Appleton.
