Robot Design Information
Tell the judges information you want them to know about your robot’s design. You might tell
them something about your game strategy you think is cool, or some interesting attachment you
designed, or some other facts about your robot that you think are cool.
The design of our robot revolved around the
challenges. Each member was given time to come up
with a robot design that they thought would make all
missions doable. From each student design we worked
towards one model of a robot as a cohesive group. Our
team came up with 5 missions that we thought we
could solve and score the most points with the time
given. We made several attachments to conquer each
mission. We then solved each mission and put them
into an order.
Tell the judges information you want them to know about your project. Examples include
something special you learned, who you shared your research with, what experts you talked to,
and what you learned about your community.
Our Project came after much research of several issues
facing natural disasters. We visited a meteorologist at
channel 6 to talk directly to about ideas. With the
consensus of the team, it was decided to work on the
Derecho wind storm. We followed that journey from the
testing out several different versions of our product to
finally making a design that was simple and very effective.
We spoke with several professionals for feedback and our
in the process of contacting companies to see if they are
interested in bringing the idea to the market.
Core Values Information
Tell the judges what you learned about FLL Core Values this season. Let them know about
problems you solved, what you've learned about working together as a team and what Gracious
Professionalism means to you.
The team had many challenge and opportunities to work
as a team in each part of the project, design, programing,
as well as discussion. Not everyone agreed with
everything, but each member contributed and we became
a much better team learning how to work through our
differences. These are skills that they will use in the real
world as they figure out how to best solve problems with

Fun Facts About Our Team
Tell the judges anything fun about your team that you want. It could be a funny story, your team
motto, or anything else you’d like them to know.
Our team is made of several schools and different grades. It
took a while to bond as a team. The stress and working out
our differences has given us strength and a unique
combination of team unity. There is also the maturity
difference between an 8th grader and a 5th grader that is both
dynamic and rewarding. The older students mentor and
teach the younger students so they can one day lead, but this
can prove challenging as they work through different
aspects of life and maturity. The thought process of a 5 th
grader is much different than that of an 8th grader. We have
learning going on in practice in many different facets of life
beyond just the robot and research and it is quite an
experience to be part of as a teacher and mentor.
