A robotics team from Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School placed third in Mechanical Design at the First Lego League World Championships on Saturday in St. Louis.

The team represented Pennsylvania after winning the regional competition in Johnstown earlier in the year.

RoboScholars, a robotics team of eight students, designed and made the PronunciAID — a device that can record short messages and play them back, “optimized for classroom use with the goal of helping students during language courses,” said school spokeswoman Janet Chambers.

The team included students Ethaniel Bishop, Ayla Dedeoglu, Jonah Ellis, Jason Gines, Araaf Mannan, Enzo Meschesi, Andrew Peters and Eli Rose; technology specialist and the coach Palvan Amanov; and mentors Oliver Rose and Kaining Guo.
