Lego Robotics Challenge

Ripley-Huron Community School and Kincardine Township Tiverton Public School missed out on the regional Lego League competition in November, so Ripley hosted KTTPS to a robotics challenge Dec. 9. Two teams from each school took part. Ripley's Senior Robotic Ravens won the banner for best performing robot; and the junior team won for best-designed robot. KTTPS won for best teamwork and best project.
