FLL 2014

Sep 25

FLL has gotten off to a somewhat slow start this year due to some hiccups with team registration but hopefully these are behind us now and we can get up and running with our project and robot work next week. One Tuesday, we’ll brainstorm ideas for the project – we need to pick some subject that we all want to learn about, research how it’s taught today and come up with some fun, new ways that it could be taught in the future. Once we have a subject picked, I’ll see if I can find some experts to come and talk to us about it.

As far as the robot goes, the new game rules are available and everyone should be reading them to get an idea of the problems they should be building the robot to solve. You can find the information on the main FLL site at http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge/2014fllworldclass. Click the “Download Challenge” link to get the document with the field, mission and scoring information. We’ll have a short quiz with prizes next Tuesday so getting up to speed on the scoring and rules may be profitable!

To help keep everyone informed, we also have a mailing list that you can subscribe to. You can find the sign up page here and I promise we won’t send more than a couple of emails a week.

Mr. Wilson

PS: I would really appreciate a couple more adult volunteers to help out with the project side of the competition. Currently there are only two of us involved and there’s a lot to cover when we’re both new to the team. If you can help out, please drop me a line at dave@webartz.com or give me a call on 512 299 1763.
