FIRST Recognizes Students for Innovation in Waste Management in Sixth Annual FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Award Contest Presented by XPRIZE.
The Incredibots are a team of four 8th graders who are passionate about robotics, research, and STEM outreach. For the past 3 years, this team has been recognized internationally for their innovative solutions to widespread global problems, including earthquakes in third world countries, drowsy driving accidents, and Styrofoam waste accumulation. In 2016, the team received the 1st Place Champions Award at the FLL Ohio State Championship and will represent Ohio at the upcoming FLL World Festival. They have also received recognition in numerous global competitions including eCYBERMISSION (National 1st Place), Christopher Columbus Awards (National 1st Place), and Google Science Fair (Regional Finalist). The Incredibots were also featured in Scholastic’s Science World magazine (October 12, 2015). Their patent-pending Styro-Filter process has the potential to reduce the nearly 2 billion pounds of non-recyclable Styrofoam that is thrown away each year in the US.
