Welcome back to another week of tip for rookie teams! Over the last 3 days we've made a lot of progress in many parts of our team. Award submissions were closed today at 3pm EST or 12PM PST, and we made sure to finish up with plenty of time left for both the Chairman's award and Woodie Flower's award. The programming team has been working on our practice robot in order to test experimental code so they will be able to quickly program the actual robot. Field elements have been finished by field elements team. The drivers have been practicing for many hours so they can perform well at the competition. Out in the metalshop, our fabrication team have been working overtime to finish up the robot before the 19th, also known as bag and tag day. You must be done and have bagged up your robot by that day, so hopefully that can be accomplished with time for programming and driving practice. Good luck with your goals for the week, and in general. See you again next week!
December began with a great start as we hosted a FLL and FLL Jr Expo at our school! We were glad to see multiple teams from the lower mainland join us on this day to celebrate the completion of their EV3 robots and compete with each other. The FLL Jr participants enjoyed displaying their LEGO creations to new friends and judges, as well as being entertained with games such as mini golf and a scavenger hunt. Altogether it was a successful day for everyone, and we are excited for next year’s expo!
