Joshua Jones, a sixth-grader at Rappahannock County Elementary School, holds up the creation of the school’s new Pantherbots team, which participated in a First Lego League regional competition in Haymarket last month. This year’s challenge involved investigating solutions to specific problems that senior citizens may face. The local First Lego League Robotics team is in its first year and is part of the school’s Headwaters/RCPS After-School Program, where students are currently learning about, designing and building Lego motorized mechanisms with team leader Layne Vickers and volunteer assistants Steve Carroll, Rachel Bynum and Davis Sheffield.
