Robot Design Information

We are 5th graders.

This is our 2nd FLL year and we have two rookies on our team. Together we have done 9 missions and are ready for 205 points.

We used simple multipurpose attachments to carry, lift, push and accomplish many missions. And ultrasonic sensor for wall follower.
We have a simple robot design that moves easily around the table.

Project Information

Our Solutions we shared with Leidos Environmental Engineer and Energy Expert at Liquefied Natural Gas and they told us how big problem this is to solve. Also shared at ES Science Fair and with Apophenia FLL Team. Our coaches didn’t know about Hydraulic Fracturing problems uses a lot of water, pollutes water and air, and we all learned together. We presented with US map like weathermen and made simulation in Minecraft for Fracking Site,Trucks, City, Solar Panels in Desert, our 360 degrees Pipe Fixer and Drones Police.

Core Values Information

We made our Team Cheer and use it before robot game. We split the work so we get more done and help each other.

We shared our project with Apophenia FLL Team 31748. We also had robot practice together and learned from their scrimmage.

We shared our FLL experience at WAES Science Fair.

We got Core Values Award in JrFLL and last year in Qualifier and State. This year we advanced from Rockville Qualifier as 2nd Champions.

Fun Facts About Our Team

We love video games and had lots of fun on project solution simulation in Minecraft and we had zombies and bunnies in the city and candy canes in the desert but we removed them for the judges. Some of our creations exploded.

At our meetings besides robots we were making Lego Technic fidgets like spinners and shooters.

We like goofing around and we practiced our presentation in front of plush toys.
