Vintage Hills in Ankeny has sponsored a group of 8th grade girls from Northview and Southview middle schools. The girls came together to make an all female Lego League team, named “Iowaish.” The Iowish is led by two coaches: Graham Schardt and Wendy Lilly, with 7 members: Avryn, Alysa, Grace, Avery, Talia, Francesca, and Faith. First Lego League is an organization with three aspects: the robot programming, the project, and core values. The theme this year is hydrodynamics, so the members of the Iowaish created a filtration system to clean and save water. The members of the Iowaish competed in Des Moines at the Science Center of Iowa, and won the Champions Award, allowing them to progress to state. They are scheduled to compete on January 14th, 2018 at Iowa State University. Good Luck at state girls!
