In addition, each team will work with senior citizens to identify a problem facing seniors and present a solution for it.

The Rockin' Robots interviewed a number of local seniors and decided to create a user-friendly website for senior citizens interested in volunteering or mentoring at local schools. This website would help seniors find the type of volunteer work they want to do at the nearest school, Nunn said. The team received help from Deborah Buchanan, who designed the school's website. 

Participation

The league’s top five teams have a chance to compete nationally, Holland said.

 Holland put the team’s accomplishment in perspective.

"There are 503 teams in the state of Florida and these guys (the Rockin’ Robots) are one of 48 that are going to state," Holland said. "They are the only elementary team from this area going."

Three schools on Okaloosa County’s north end, including Davidson and Shoal River middle schools, have Lego league teams.
