On December 17th, the Deerpark Robotics team spent the first Saturday for their winter break competing at Central Texas First Lego League Qualifying Tournament. Each team is given three opportunities to get as many points on a mat with their robot as possible. After the second round, Deerpark was tied for first place with another team, and in a strategic decision decided to try to stay consistent with their plan of attack in case judges looked at their second highest scores. This plan ultimately worked and they were awarded 1st place on the competition mat and were invited to the Central Texas First Lego League Invitational Tournament in February. Look for more from this outstanding team of individuals!
