This school year, ROBOLUTION decided to re-think its team format and goals but still focus on inspiring the community. As a late-start team, we chose to use a club format while incorporating the FLL model. That is, while we participate in completing the FLL Challenge, we also include robot enrichment projects that are not part of the FLL Challenge, continue to grow in our knowledge of the robot design process and also learn how to use the new LEGO Mindstorms EV3 (EV for EVOLUTION) platform.
This year, ROBOLUTION is still made up of six students, half males and half females. Our grades range from fifth grade to seventh grade. We are a culturally diverse team made up of various international backgrounds including Vietnamese, Indian, Ukranian, Japanese, Filipino, and Lebanese. Each of us has at least one year of FLL experience, so we capitalize on our veteran experience by being more independent in decision making, team work and problem solving. Each of us bring a unique aspect, skill and talent to the team which makes the team both interesting and strong.
The FLL theme this year is natural disasters, where FLL teams from around the world are challenged to study natural disasters and to come up with an innovative solution to a problem related to a specific natural disaster. Like other FLL teams, ROBOLUTION will learn how to prepare for and stay safe during a natural disaster and also learn how communities rebuild after a natural disaster happens. Are you ready for the FLL “Nature’s Fury” Challenge? ROBOLUTION IS!
