Eighth grade C.A.A. Baldi Middle School students Jonathan Xavier (left) and Jafari Jackson watch their school’s robot, the product of eight weeks of hard work, perform at the Fourth Annual FIRST LEGO League Tournament, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania in January. Teams from 22 area schools participated in the competition, which encourages students to problem-solve using robots that they design and construct. Awards are given to the teams that create the best robot, as well as those that display teamwork, spirit and eye-catching T-shirts. Baldi took home honors in the Teamwork; Spirit and Sportsmanship; Project Presentation; and Champion’s Award categories.
