Fifty teams from across the state competed in the Connecticut FIRST Lego League State Robotics Championship on Sunday, Dec. 7.

Students from four Shelton teams were among the competitors — the Perry Hill Predators, Perry Hill Brainiacs, Shelton Intermediate Robotic Revolution, and Shelton Intermediate Dominators.

“The kids really get into it,” said Ken Craft, coach of the Robotic Revolution team at Shelton Intermediate School. “It involves researching and programming, and they really need to pull together.”
