JANUARY 10, 2017—Boone Dam engineer Aaron Nottis (pictured with microphone, below) interacted with plenty of future engineers during the second annual FIRST LEGO League Tennessee State Qualifying Tournament at East Tennessee State University on Dec. 3, 2016. Aaron was one of the judges for the competition, which featured 25 teams of 9-14 year olds from across the Tri-Cities region. Competitors researched real world issues and designed, built and competed using LEGO robots. Top qualifiers will compete in Cookeville in February. TVA sponsors the tournament as part of its ongoing support of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
