Southern Door Middle School’s first Lego team – comprising Hailey Veeser, Spencer Slezewski and Avery VanRemortel – finished 12th out of 29 teams during the first Lego League sectional tournament in Appleton. The team’s robot earned the Judge’s Award, and the team members were nominated for the Teamwork Award.
This was their last competition because they can compete only through eighth grade. During the past four years, the group learned teamwork, programming, research, gracious professionalism and the lesson that hard work pays off. Tracy Slezewski mentored the team.
