Iowa County 4-H team is runner-up in FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation

Robotic Raiders 4-H team

With a game of “Cyclone Survivor,” a team of Iowa County 4-H’ers has been named one of two runners-up in the FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Award competition.

The Robotic Raiders received $5,000 to further develop their invention. Their project has a provisional patent in place and was among 547 applications from across the world. Not bad for a group of sixth and seventh graders in only their second year as a FIRST LEGO League team.
