Torrey Hills Robotics students with teacher Uma Krishnan.

Torrey Hills Robotics teams competed in a Qualifying Tournament at High Tech High in Point Loma on Nov. 3.

Students in six teams, participated in the First Lego League challenge, building and programing robots. This year the topic for the challenge is Nature’s Fury — all natural calamities caused by nature. Students researched topics such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches and volcanoes and they visited the fire station to talk with first responders, and had a Skype conversation. Each team came up with an innovative solution to help in disasters. Though the teams did not qualify they did impress the judges and won in four categories: 1st Place in Core Values; 1st Place in Project Award (Presentation); 2nd Place in Project Award (Innovative solution); and 2nd Place in Robot Design.
