Two FIRST LEGO teams from Frank Fowler Dow School No. 52 are heading to the University of Rochester on Sunday to compete in the Finger Lakes FIRST LEGO League Championship Tournament. Both teams—the 1738 Dragons and Scept-a-gem Dragons—qualified based on their overall performance at the Finger Lakes Regional Qualifier on November 14.

School No. 52—the only Rochester City School District team attending the tournament—will join over 30 qualifying teams this Sunday to compete at the annual tournament. The school is also bringing five Junior LEGO teams, who will participate in a Junior LEGO event at the same location.

Teacher Tanya Homer has been the faculty advisor for the school’s LEGO League teams since the program began over five years ago. She recruits, guides, and encourages student team members as well as their adult volunteer coaches. Mrs. Homer’s dedication to the program has been integral in driving the school community’s sustained interest and participation in FIRST LEGO League.
