Three middle-school robotics teams from the Aspen, Colo., area won awards at the Colorado First Lego League state championships. The competition teaches the students more than engineering skills as students learn to work together to overcome challenges and to be confident performing in public, said Caroline Hanson, director of the Glenwood Springs qualifying tournament and Aspen Middle School's robotics coach. "A big part of this competition is learning to adapt and adjust as a team," she said.
