This weekend, the LEGO Mountaineers won the top award for their research and presentation on how undersea robots can be used to help restore the kelp forests. Amy and Wendy even built a mock-up of their proposed solution to demonstrate how it would work.
Collaborating via email, Skype, and snail mail, the girls coordinated their projects and activities and overcame significant challenges to create a compelling robot and presentation. I'm very proud of these kids and their accomplishments. This year, in particular, all four of the girls really put their skills to work with very little adult involvement.
