Litchfield Montessori Brainiacs returned victoriously from the State Competition! The team comprised of nine students, aged nine to twelve, all of whom were rookies to the Lego® League and FIRST® Robotics competition. Out of the entire State, the LMS Brainiacs took Second Place for Innovative Solution for their project on milk safety. Their solution to prevent the human consumption of spoiled milk by detecting the decrease of pH levels, designed after research collected from neighboring Arethusa Farm, impressed the judges. The children worked together with dedicated grit, collaborative effort, and impressive sportsmanship to earn this award. They share this amazing accomplishment with the entire Litchfield Montessori community who supported them so enthusiastically! The larger Litchfield area community was also instrumental to their success. Several local business volunteered time and talent to aid the Brainiacs, including Arethusa Farm, Winsted Super Saver, Litchfield Candy Co, Land Jet Bus Company and Rozzi's Diner. Way to go Brainiacs!
