VOLUNTEERING: All South Carolina FIRST LEGO League events are completely ran by volunteers. Everyone from the check-in staff, the Robot Game queuers, the referees, the judges, on up to the tournament directors volunteer their time. Anybody can make a great volunteer. Volunteers do not need to be an expert in everything FIRST LEGO League. If you’re interested in lending a helping hand, head over to the Volunteering page.
We would like to thank Atlas Technologies, Inc. for being the presenting sponsor of the Hydro Dynamics season in South Carolina.

The top 7 teams will advance based on their average ranking by the Judges in Core Values, Project and Robot Design, and must finish ranked in the top 18 (actual number, not percentage) Robot Game scores at the event.
