Three teams from St. Anthony's School and one from Huron Heights Public School competed at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League tournament held Sunday in the gymnasium at St. Anthony's.

About 20 members of the Kincardine District Secondary School Robotic Knights organized the event and judged each competition.

The teams from St. Anthony's included the Noble Team, Electric Helmet and Road Kill, while the Huron Heights team was the Go-Go-Ro-Bo-Gadgets.

With plenty of loud music playing, each team tried to get its robot to do the required elements, in order to win the contest.

Organizers were a bit disappointed at the reduced number of teams this year. There was no team from Ripley or KTTPS.
