Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Peet Junior High School in Cedar Falls was overrun by blocky robots constructed out of Legos.

the school hosted the annual first Lego League Robotics competition.

Teams of middle school students from all over the state built robots from the same Lego set provided several months ago.

They then programmed these robots to perform complex tasks on a playing field.

"These kids are working together to learn about teamwork, learn about building a robot, learn about programming a robot, and just core values in general," said Jan Newendorp, director of the FIRST Lego League.
