Salmon Creek -- Twenty teams unleashed homemade, self-propelled robots at Salmon Creek Elementary School during the 2012 FIRST Lego League qualifying tournament Dec. 1. Three Clark County teams made the cut and will proceed to the state competition. They are the Soggy Cloverteers, the Dynamos and the Brain Bots. All three teams are made up of 9- to 14-year-olds. The competition at Skyview involved a 21/2-minute solo run, followed by a checklist of tasks. Teams were only allowed to touch their robots when they were at "home base." The competition was sponsored by Clark County 4-H.
