The R-7 School District was the only district nationwide to qualify three robotics teams for the national championship this year. Lee's Summit was also the smallest city to send three or more teams.
Lee's Summit North ranked third in its division, which included 87 teams, with a record of 6-1 at the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology Championship. The three teams received substantial community support as individuals and businesses donated money to help the students travel to the national competition.
