Great news! Falcon Robotics, the robotic team of Freedom Crossing Academy, has received an invitation to the regional competition following their impressive performance at the St. Johns County’s First Lego League Qualifier competition. Out of the 24 participating elementary and middle school teams, the Falcon Robotics team stood out as one of the top contenders in the robotics table competition and was awarded the First in Show Rising All Star Award and First in Show Robot Performance Award. The team, comprised of both elementary and middle school students, is proudly sponsored by Mrs. Ranken, FCA STEM Teacher. Congratulations, Falcon Robotics!

Throughout the school year, the Falcon Robotics Club works together to design, build, and program robots to solve missions using the resources from Lego Spike Prime and VEX Robotics. They create and code their robots using Block coding software and complete specific robotic challenges using successful engineering design process strategies and team collaboration. In addition to coding and building, the students implement a robotics program that requires them to find solutions to real world problems. Using the skills and strategies developed during their weekly meetings, the Falcon Robotics Team will compete in the First Lego League Northeast Florida Regional Championship in February. The team is one step closer to the Worlds Championship!
