Colleyville Middle School Lego League performs for the LEOs

The Colleyville Middle School Lego League visited the LEOs and performed a skit that helped inform members about deteriorating peripheral vision and a way to help combat it. LEO Jacob Hethcock is also a member of the CMS FLL Team. Jacob was involved in getting some of his teammates to help with the LEOs Eyeglass Recycling efforts where they learned how to use a lensometer to measure the prescription strength of used eyeglasses being prepared for use by mission groups around the world.

The FIRST LEGO League (also known by the acronym FLL) is an international competition for elementary and middle school students (ages 9–14 in the USA and Canada, 9-16 and Australia). It is arranged by the FIRST organization.

Each year the contest focuses on a different real-world topic related to the sciences. Each challenge within the competition then revolves around that theme. The robotics part of the competition revolves around designing and programming LEGO Robots to complete tasks. The students work out solutions to the various problems they are given and then meet for regional tournaments to share their knowledge, compare ideas, and display their robots.
