Our homeschool robotics team participated in a local FLL competition in Hermosa Beach. The team received the highest scores for robot performance, research, and the technical presentation, earning them the Robot Performance Award and the Championship Award.

This is the first stop in a journey the kids hope will take them to Washington D.C. to meet the president. Next stop is in the Santa Clarita Regional FLL event where the team must qualify to attend the L.A. State Competition. If they win that, then can continue to the national competition. Last year, President Bush invited the winning teams from the national event to an award reception at the White House. The team is hoping he will do that again and that they will be invited to attend.

I'm very proud of the team and I think they have a very good chance at winning and achieving their goal.

Very good job. I'm in the first lego league also and we are building an NXT 2.0 robot. I need some suggestions on what we should add to the robot. Plz e-mail me ideas at Elias.Roos@hotmail.com
