The Liberty High School Robotics Team, the Robo-Lions, recently won its third grant in as many years from NASA to participate in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.

The $6,000 competitive grant is intended for teams with experience in building and competing robot designs.

It is part of the Liberty team's goal to help other Carroll teams join in learning about robot design, computer graphics, project management, system integration, programming, professionalism and other aspects of the FIRST program.

The Robo-Lions invite all Carroll students interested in learning more about robotics to join them as they build their new robot in January and February, and for the competitions that follow.

The grant will enable the team to compete twice in the coming season -- first in Washington, D.C., Feb. 26-28, 2009, then in Annapolis, March 19-21, 2009.
