A rag-tag Lego robotics team from Islip has qualified for one of the world's top competitions.
The Islip Brickaneers are a self-funded team that practice once a week in a basement.
Made up of three eighth-grade boys and three fifth-grade girls, the team defied all odds by coming in second place in the Long Island Championship.
Their next competition is in Long Beach, California. The team is raising money to pay for the trip.
