35 teams from around Georgia went head to head at the 13th annual Central Georgia For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Lego League Super Regional Qualifier on Saturday.
The middle schoolers put their STEM knowledge to the test using Lego robots.
The research theme for the competition was hydrodynamics, so all of the challenges had to do with how to save and clean water.
Navigating through the course, schools cheered on their teammates as they completed their missions.
We spoke with students from Warner Robins Middle School who say the competition is a fun way to learn
"Most people think it's nerve-wracking, but it's really not. If anything, it's really fun,” said seventh grader, Zoe Huggler.
"Because I really like to engineer things and see things move that I built. It just makes me feel like I made something," said sixth grader, Omar Asad.
The winner of Saturday's competition will move on to compete in the state tournament hosted at Georgia Tech.
Warner Robins Middle School placed second out of 32 teams on the robot table and first in Robot design.
The team will find out if they move on to the next round on Monday.
