Dragon female engineering enthusiasts enjoyed the spotlight earlier this month. Several represented Lake Orion’s Team 302 at an all-girls robotics competition held at Bloomfield Hills High School, featuring 32 teams. Only girls were allowed to drive the robots and then fix them between matches. Working under pressure and in alliance with three other teams, Team 302 earned enough points to advance in each round of the finals. In the tie-breaking match, their alliance came out ahead and the girls brought home a trophy to Lake Orion. At the middle school level, the Lake Orion Robot Rebels FLL (First Lego Team) competed in the Sharkfest qualifying tournament in Troy. They received both the Champion's Award (1st place) and 1st place for robot performance. The Robot Rebels are made up of seven Lake Orion students (one not pictured) – four from Scripps, two from Waldon, and one from Carpenter. They will be competing in the state tournament in December.
