Local fifth-graders build Lego robots

Did you ever have a teacher that actually made learning fun? That is exactly what some local teachers are trying to do at the Rachel Freeman School of Engineering. By the looks on these fifth graders faces the teachers were successful. The students have spent the last two weeks building robots out of Legos while learning about motion, and design. Engineers from GE visited the classes to help design, test and program the robots using computer software. Friday the students' hard work was put to the test. Ten-year-old Antwane Long said, "The best part was when we were out there racing against the green team but we lost, but it was all good." The champion of the tournament wins a trophy, but no one will go home empty-handed. Each student receives a medallion for all their hard work.
