So we got through the FIRST Lego League robotics qualifier in December, and we're off to the provincial championship tomorrow with my son's team (which I coach for lack of anyone else).
The top 3 teams (out of 40) go on to compete at the World's Championship (in Detroit this year), so they are pretty pumped! It's their second year and they're probably still too young to perform at that level, but it is nice to have a dream
Video of the robot challenge: to build and program a completely autonomous robot that can achieve all (or most) of the missions. The judging is equally weighted on the robot game, on a science project and Core Values.
Here's an early version of their robot this year...
