POWER UP Lego Robotics team 2nd in state
Marquette-based Lego Robotics team POWER UP recently tied for second at the state championship held in Flint. It was the highest overall finish ever by any Upper Peninsula team. Shown with their trophy are team mentor Sam Salo, coach/sponsor Bruce Roberts, and teammates Heston Roberts, Noah Roberts, and Ryan Salo. Sponsored by Roberts Financial Services Inc., the team excelled in the judged areas of robot technical, core values, and its project presentation, which focused on protecting Marquette from an improbable tsunami on Lake Superior created by the Keweenaw Fault.
