Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Pottsgrove Middle School.

Two Robotics Teams represented Pottsgrove Middle School in the LEGO First Competition on Saturday Dec. 10 in Conshohocken at the AIM Academy.

The 7th Grade Team took an impressive third place in the Robot category and a first place in Core Values. 

The 8th Grade Team took a first place in the prestigious Robot category and also won the All Around Award! 

Our 8th grade Team was named the Champion and advances to the next round in February. 

Pottsgrove Middle School had a team go all the way to the National Competition in 2013 and our current 8th grade team is working toward that same opportunity.

Faculty sponsor, Mrs. Deb Frasca, works with students as they plan and prepare all aspects of the LEGO competition. 

Students design, build, research, and present their solutions to a panel of judges.

Our 8th grade team included an innovative solution to give beginning equestrian students real-time feedback on their balance in the saddle.
