ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — On Saturday, some of New Mexico’s best STEM teams competed in the FIRST LEGO League state championship.

The New Mexico FIRST LEGO League says it’s a way to inspire and challenge kids in areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Of course, it’s also a perfectly good reason to build a robot with LEGOs.

“Our project is a solar-powered phone case with an internet router connected to it, and then it can use any light.”

“Our innovation project is that it’s a car turbine that, as the energy goes through, it’ll make energy and will power the car battery and backup generator.”

Organizers plan to host more league events this year. Read more about the league by clicking here.
