Ready, Set, Flow! Both Saint Lucy School robotics teams performed wonderfully in this year’s First Lego League (FLL) Competition, based on a Hydro Dynamics.
This year’s challenge focus was all about water – how we find, transport, use or dispose of it. The challenge included programming a robot to score points on a themed table, and designing and presenting a solution to an identified problem. Team “BoltBots 3.h2o” designed a solution on how to save water. They invented “Scratch a Bottle” to help people avoid bottle confusion and identify which bottle of water is theirs. They placed sixth in the robotics mission, and won not only the project award, but also an award for Global Awareness!
Team “BoltBots 2.h20” designed a solution for reducing pollution from water running through storm drains and into lakes and oceans by inventing a storm-drain filter box. Throughout their experience, teams operated under the First Lego League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.
Principal Sue Grover honored both teams at Saint Lucy School’s morning assembly, and plans to bring each grade through the science lab for the teams to present their projects. Saint Lucy School is committed to engaging our students in opportunities to develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.
