Students from five Yucatecan elementary and middle schools participated in the First LEGO League, where they stood out with the presentation of projects related to the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

Three secondary schools traveled to Mexico City and two primary schools traveled virtually from Mérida.

More than 90 teams from 22 states of the country participated in the competition in search of a place in the international stage of this tournament.

Of the 13 schools in Yucatán selected in the regional phase that took place on March 4, five are under the administration of the Secretariat of Education of the State Government (SEGEY): primary schools “15 de mayo” and “Venustiano Carranza”; the secondary schools Técnica No. 2, Estatal No. 5 “Eduardo Urzaiz”, from Mérida and the Telesecundaria “Juana de Asbaje” from the Ekpedz district of the municipality of Tixcacalcupul.

The three secondary schools that traveled to Mexico City to participate in the competition at the Cedros School Center and the elementary schools presented their projects to the judges and other teams virtually.

The participants presented initiatives for solutions to urban and ecological problems through the use of clean energy, for example, the construction of sustainable buildings and cities that work with the use of wind or solar energy.

Among the outstanding participants from Mexico City were the children from the Ekpedz school, who returned to Yucatán with a special award as the Revelation Team of 2023.

Among the participants, Diany Dzul Pat, whose team presented in Spanish and Maya a wind energy project to operate the machinery of a drinking water pump, since in her town the lack of this service caused by electricity failures is a recurring problem.

“We want the name of Ekpedz to reach Mexico and we want to be an example for young people to dare to participate and show that it is possible to get ahead and win even if there are limitations,” he said.

Among the projects presented at a distance were the Astros Team from “15 de Mayo” elementary school and “Robotics Club Ford 26” from “Venustiano Carranza” elementary school, who won the prizes for best model and best poster, respectively.
