Lego League

The first Lego League team, the “Elite Engineers” won their qualifying event at Ensworth in February. They beat 18 other teams from the Nashville area. They had the second highest score in the robot game, and scored very well in the other three subjective areas (Core Values, Project [generating electricity from storm water runoff], and Robot Design). All that combined to crown them the champions of the competition!

The stormwater presentation stemmed from a field trip to our local Copper Creek construction site where the kids and attending adults viewed first-hand how the city land disturbance permit consists of in regards to SWPPP Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan. The students hatched their plan together after thinking of how they could help by installing green infrastructure with detention water. Congratulations! and great job!! We are very proud to have such talent in the City of Goodlettsville!
