BROOKLYN - It’s coming down to the wire for a group of students preparing for the New York City First Lego League Championship.

Students at Salve Regina Catholic Academy in East New York are testing and tweaking their robots in anticipation for the competition.

The eight students in grades six through eight call themselves The Royal Sages. They took first place in the 2013-2014 New York qualifying tournament, beating out 45 other Brooklyn robotic teams for the top spot.

The students say they are nervous but are looking forward to showing the judges what they have been working hard on to produce. 

The competition is Saturday, April 5, at the Javits Center. The Salve Regina Catholic Academy students will face 74 other teams from the five boroughs.
