18 FIRST LEGO League Teams came together October 1st to practice for the FLL (FIRST LEGO Leauge) Qualifying Tournament in November.
FLL is part of FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. FIRST is trying to help inspire kids grades K-12 to love science and technology and seek jobs in these high paying fields of work.
Each year FLL comes out with a different Theme for the 4x8 board the teams will run their robot on. This years theme is "Trash Trek", which is all about what happens to items when we are done with them?
The Teams got to run their robots on the table for two 2 1/2 min rounds in which they would try to score as many points with their robot as they could. Robots had to be pre-programmed and would run based off of their programs downloaded into them.
To the right you will see the final scores. (See the PDF Below as well)
