The Germ Fighters

Germ City Group

Congratulations to the Germ Fighters, our Junior F.I.R.S.T. Lego League team who competed at the Tennessee State Competition in Cookville, TN Saturday, December 10th. This year's theme was food safety and our team built a sink emphasizing the importance of hand washing. The Germ Fighters worked hard this season and learned a lot about Food Safety. We visited the U. T. Extention program, "Germ City," and learned about healthy animals from Dr. Bill Newman. Way to go team!!!

Each year, the Riverside Christian Academy Robotics Departmment, along with local businesses, sponsor teams to participate in the F.I.R.S.T. Lego League competition. Starting in the Fall, the Junior teams work on building a project based on a given theme while the older kids work on themed robotic projects using Legos. The teams then travel to Cookville, TN in December to present their projects. It's a great learning opportunity for all!
