On Saturday The RoboTofu Turtle Lords (Mina Johnstone, Sebastian Ball, Priya Mampilly, Thomas Mampilly, Dean McCalmon, Andy Kreeger, and Prana Bernstein) competed in their first ever FIRST Lego League Tournament at Reedy Creek Middle School in Cary, N.C. 29 teams from across the Triangle were in attendance. Congratulations to Heather Hartman who was awarded The Young Adult Mentor Award (YAM) by FIRST North Carolina. The YAM Award is given to a student mentor who has shown great dedication and leadership in the support of FIRST programs in North Carolina. Many thanks to the other Upper School students who were there to assist (Virginia Bruhn, Kathleen Stancil-Suttton and Patrick Ireland) and to parents Donald Ball and John Ireland who were also volunteers at the event. Coaches Angela and Robyn and Ms. Michelle were very proud of all involved!
