Byron Robotics Team

The Byron Middle School robotics teams, Bearbytes and HydroBears, are moving on to the state competition!

Both teams competed in a sectional tournament on Saturday, Jan. 13, against 48 teams. Out of all 640 FIRST LEGO League teams in Minnesota, only the top 68 teams move on to the state competition.

The competition has three parts. The first is designing and building a robot to compete with others on a board. During this, the Bearbytes won The Innovative Design Award at a recent regional tournament.

The second part of the competition is designing and building a product that will solve a real-world problem related to water.

The Bearbytes tackled the problem of filtering dirty water to make it drinkable in times of natural disaster or other crisis. Their product includes a copper tube along with ultraviolet light to kill bacteria. The HydroBears solved the problem of microplastics in water, making it much safer to drink. Because of their great solution, the team won The Best Project Award at a regional event.
