GLENDALE ? Controlled chaos was the name of the game Saturday at Roosevelt Middle School. The campus hosted more than 250 people in a Lego robotics tournament that represented the gains the devices have made within Glendale Unified School District elementary and middle schools. Robotics began at Roosevelt three years ago and with borrowed robotics kits. Were it not for a dedicated core of eighth-graders, the school might not be competing among the highest levels of Los Angeles and Southern California Lego robotics, organizers said.

Several myths are being shattered by local Girl Scouts as they prove that girls are great at science, math and engineering. Girls Scouts, made up of several troops in Crescenta Valley, formed a robotic team and competed in the FIRST [For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology] Lego League. The league is a robotics program for children nine to 14 which challenges them to explore the world of engineering. Each year a challenge is devised based on current, real-world situations like global warming and energy consumption.

GLENDALE — Seventh-grader Ryan Penarroyo snapped a dozen Lego pieces to finish off the catapult atop his six-wheeled robot. He placed a thick wheel in the catapult’s launch pad, pressed a button and watched it go. No sooner had the wheel landed in the robotics obstacle course more than a foot away did Ryan’s robot mechanically say, “Have a nice day.” Ryan will be one of 10 Roosevelt Middle School students to...

Huddled around a game board at the Girl Scouts clubhouse Wednesday night in Montrose, a team of 10 girls watched as the robot they had built from Lego pieces rolled onto the playing field and started doing what they had programmed it to do. There was a collective cry of consternation when the wheeled Lego robot failed to pick up three Lego corn pieces, and a group cheer when the robot placed the Lego hydro-dam properly over the game-board river...

The kinds of things robots do can be put into four general categories — delicate, dull, dangerous and dirty, Jacqueline Tsang and Emily Hardin, two 10-year-olds who attend Mountain Avenue Elementary School, learned this year. So when the girls built their own robot out of Legos, they decided to name it “4D,” for these four kinds of tasks. On Friday, the girls and 4D had a chance to try out some delicate tasks, as the robot competed with more than 30 other similar robots created by students in the Glendale Unified School District at a robotics tournament at Rosemont Middle School.
