About the Team

“The Bricks Awaken” is a FIRST Lego League team competing in Central Illinois.  We have completed our fourth season, and have 8 members, including 7 returning from last year.   We have six 8th graders, one 6th grader, and one 5th grader.  In our first year we were known as the “Recyclones.”

Most of us are used to individual competitions but aren’t used to being on “teams,” so we’ve had a lot to learn about working together. That’s much harder than learning to program a robot!

We’ve learned that teaming up with someone with different skills is a good way to accomplish a task. We also learned that no one person has all the answers. We’ve really enjoyed collaborating with other FLL teams to share ideas and teach new skills.
