The Oak Ridge LEGO Blasters received the honor for the Gamma Pajamas, a one-piece undergarment that would block 57 percent of gamma radiation during deep space travel, to help keep astronauts healthy.

The Blasters also advanced to the state tournament to compete in the regular LEGO League competitions.

The two Lego League teams from Excelsior also advance.

Excelsior Red is working on a project to allow astronauts the ability to communicate with each other and family members through the use of a platform they are calling Spacebook.

Excelsior Black is working on a project that would allow astronauts to experience gravity in space.
This device would slow the rate of muscle and bone loss due to the lack of gravity.

Good luck to all our teams!
