SPOKANE, Wash. -- Students from across Washington headed to Ellensburg Friday to compete in the state finals in a robotics competition using Legos.

Students from Bemiss Elementary are the only kids in the entire school district to make it to the state competition. They have been working hard for months to get to the competition.

The 10 students had to create a robot that would respond to a natural disaster. The team chose to make one that could help during a tsunami.

“All of the robots are different, made out of different types of Legos,” said student Donovan Smith.

This is the first year the team has been together and it is the coaches’ first year leading a team. Not only are they new to this type of challenge but they are representing much of Spokane as the only team from Spokane Public Schools.

“We’re just really excited. We can’t wait to see what happens at state and we wish everybody luck,” said Coach Katie Wood.
