Last week I had the privilege of acting as a referee for the Lego robotics competition. Students flew in from all the villages to compete. They had to create a robot that would build alternative energy systems for the competition. They also had to do an energy audit and present their findings to the judges. It was really cool to see all of the students engineering their robots and competing academically. The Oscarville team won first place and will go on to Anchorage for the state competition on January 12th. They worked with their community to develop a plan to put in a river turbine to power their community as a result of their energy sudit. Two of the villages do have wind towers. Next years competition theme is Global Warming.
