(ABC 6 News) -- Teams from around our area are competing to create the best robot out of Legos.

It was all part of the first Lego League Competition at Willow Creek Middle School in Rochester.

Teams of 4th through 8th grades had to build a Lego robot that could accomplish missions on a field set.

This year's theme was natural disasters.

The goal is to get kids interested in Science, Engineering, Technology and Math.

The top four teams from this weekend's event will go on to the state competition in St. Paul next month.
