A LEGOS robot competition got under way Sunday in Middle Island as organizers hoped to spark children's interest in science.
Forty-five teams from across the Island, made up of 10 children each ranging from 9 to 14, worked hard for the past two months to put together mobile LEGO robots. They put the robots to the test at Longwood High School.
The kids said they learned important lessons, such as energy conservation and how to program robots.A team from Massapequa won the local competition and will head to Georgia in April to compete against teams from 44 other countries for a world title.
