First LEGO League Competition Sept 2003 - Dec 2003

A longtime LEGO and robotics enthusiast, at age 14 I founded a robotics team along with one of my teachers. We designed, built, and programmed an autonomous mobile robot to compete in the 2003 Iowa State FIRST LEGO League Tournament. We came in 2nd place even after having to completely reprogram the robot at the competition. (I suppose I was destined to be an engineer.)
