The FLL theme this year is Trash Trek. The project challenge focused on trash and how we take care of trash. We chose milk cartons and specifically recycling milk cartons in our school. Our team started a milk carton recycling program and has been successfully recycling 400-500 milk cartons per day since early November.
The DataBots competed in the state competition this past Saturday. Our team did an amazing job, including a 255 point robot run on our third and final run. This was the highlight of the season and positions us well for the start of the 2015-16 season.
The DataBots had a great practice tonight. We started our practice by reviewing our rubrics from the qualifier. We learned areas that we performed well in as well as areas that need some improvement. Work was started on our Robot Executive Design Summary and we did some redesigning on our robot. The robot redesign led to a re-evaluation of our mission strategy. Looking forward to next week’s practice.
In case you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to ride atop the Databots Mindstorm robot, this video gives you a taste. The video is from a test run we did at the Sioux Falls qualifier on December 6, 2014. Unfortunately we missed getting the key at the end of the run.
