FLL Team at STREM HQ heading for FIRST Robotics challenges.
STREM HQ's Robotics Genius’s get ready to take on the world.
In the first place LEGO League (FLL) is a worldwide competition sorted out by FIRST (For the Inspiration of Science and Technology) for rudimentary and center school understudies (ages 9–14 in the United States and Canada). Every year in August, FIRST LEGO League presents an exploratory and true test for groups to center and research on. Guided by two or more grown-up Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a certifiable issue, for example, sustenance well being, reuse or vitality, and more, and are tested to build up an answer.
The apply autonomy part of the competition includes designing and programming LEGO Mind storms robots to finish errands. The understudies work out answers for the different issues they are given and afterward meet for provincial competitions to share their insight, look at thoughts, and showcase their robots. . They likewise should outline, construct, program a robot utilizing LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then contend on a table-top playing field.
FIRST competitions are an idea challenge to cope up with the social and environmental problems of today’s world. STREMHQ robotics students provide their unique ideas to solve these problems. Two categories are included that is Coding or Making to think of an inventive arrangement idea to determine this dare.
First Lego League was started in 1999 and its theme was “First Contact”. It centered round a gathering of space travelers stranded in a space station. 975 teams and 9500 participants became part of it.
Each year there is a specific theme on which FLL Events occurs.
Themes that have been used over the past are :
“Volcanic Panic” ; “Arctic Impact” ; “City Sights” ; “Mission Mars” ; “No Limits”, “Ocean Odyssey” ;
“Nano Quest” ; “Power Puzzle” ; “Climate Connections”, “Smart Move”; “Body Forward” ; “Food Factor”; “Senior Solutions”; “Nature’s Fury”; “World Class Learning Unleashed”; “Trash Trek” was last year’s theme and it was focusing on finding suitable and advanced ways to manage trash.
Current year theme is “Animal Alliance” and over 28,000 teams are engaged in it. As you can see the number of teams has been increasing exponentially, hence the challenge keeps getting tougher and competitive each year.
Just last year, 2015 STREM HQ rookie teams stood 5th and 10th in robot rounds at regional qualifiers!
At STREMHQ, we believe that each student should have this opportunity for this amazing challenge, it is not just about the robot but about experience as a whole. Participation in which is a reward and with that goal in mind, we keep all our robotics team students engaged in the process, we are competitive, have a great scorecard at the competition and are ready to make friends and have fun!
