Lego robots competition


Trevor Otto, a fifth-grade Panther from Pierce Elementary School, Cedar Rapids, shows his anguish as his LEGOS robotic car stalls during its obstacle course run Dec. 8 in the Howe Hall atrium. The College of Engineering hosted the inaugural Iowa competition of the FIRST LEGO League, in which teams of students between the ages of 9 and 14 build robotic cars and test them on an obstacle course against other school teams.
