This year’s FLL robotics challenge

Thursday, September 16th, 2004
This year's robotics challenge appears to be the hardest one yet. Several missions to accomplish -- all in under two minutes.  I'm still working on getting the new group blog site up for our Robotics team. For now, I'll post the girl's latest entries here..

Today my sister and I helped my dad set up the playing field so that it will be ready for our next team meeting this weekend. It looks really cool.

We brainstormed on different ideas the we have for the different challenges. We are going to start experimenting soon. This year is going to be really exciting.

Today we got the challenge for this year's LEGO Robotics competition. It is very exciting! This year has the hardest challenges that I have ever seen. We have to program our robot to do a lot of things that a disabled person might have trouble with. Like opening a gate, putting a ball through a hoop, feeding animals, and putting things away.

Also our research challenge is that we invent a robot to solve a problem that a disabled person might have in our community. We will really need to work on our robotics skills. I look forward to another great year of LEGO League.

Well, there you have it; the team's first public blog entries. Shortly, I'll have the new team group blog site operational. There, you will be able to follow the progress of the LEGO Mountaineers through their eyes and blog as they prepare for and compete in this year's competition.  I look forward myself to seeing what they have to say and to adding my own perspective about our experience using various productivity programs, such as MindManager, ResultManager, and OneNote 2003.
