Meeting 2/11/08

Today we did another team work challenge, we had to tie an over hand knot with us holding different pieces of wire(sounds easy but it is not lol)  I also worked on "the master program" which makes it so we can do 9 missions in one program.   

2/5/07.. oops 08

Today we went to Penryn School and showed our robot and presentation to the kids.

Penryn school

Yesterday, our team (or, most of it, Justin was sick) went to Penryn school to give the 6th grade class a presentation of what we do, and what we've done, and what we want to do in Atlanta.  I think the kids enjoyed it, and the school is thinking of starting a team themselves.  

 

2/5/08 Meeting

On 2/5/08, wednesday, the team went to Penryn School for an hour to show them what we do along with the FLL. Although Justin couldn't make it because he was sick it still went well and most of the kids in the class seemed to enjoy it. We will be seeing other schools and such, doing the same basic things, and I hope that all of the children will enjoy our presentation. Not only will we be seeing schools, but now we are also going to be going to the Board of Supervisors sometime soon and even though we have only 10 minutes with them, it is better than nothing!

Meeting 2/4/08

On Monday we worked on team work challenges (which i thought were fun) and worked on what we had to do at penryn elermtary school.

Meeting

Today Justin, Robin and Karl worked on the power mission, tweaking it so that once it moved the arm out there, it would move back a little bit and drop another arm, and run it into the side to it would be pushed closer to the power plant.  Gavin and me worked on fixing our other table, so that we could take it to the news studio to preform a few of our missions.  We also did our presentation once, and video taped it to see what we could improve.

 

Atlanta here we come!!!!!

Frist I must say great job everyone!!!!!!! With out you guys there is no way that we could have made it this far!!!!!!!!  On Saturday we took 1st place directors award, which is pretty amazing since out of 64 teams the odds of us getting first place are very slim.  Probally  the most exiting part of the day was deffently when we got called back for engineering, and the second favorite part of the day would have to be when we got 400 points on are last run!!!! Once again great job everyone!!!!!!!!!!! 

ATLANTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last Saturday we won 1st place in our state competition but it took alot of hard work. When we got recalled to rejudge the robot desine with the Robot Masters we knew thats somthing good was going to happen. Then during the award ceremoney i will admit that some of the catagories seemed to fit us and it did scare me for a few moments. Then after we didnt place 1st or 2nd in the robot disine catagorie we knew that it would be all or nothing. When they didnt announce our name for 2nd or 3rd we were allittle happy but also scard but when they were describing the team that won and they called out our name we were so excitied and we jumped up to get the award.   Then after that was all done we helped clean up the place and we went to have a team dinner to celebrate. 

                                                                                        GOOD JOB EVERYONE!!!!!!!

State Results

On Saturday, we received first place in the State competition, which means that we are going to Atlanta.  I was very tired because of all of the excitement.  I was very excited when we scored a 400 on the table.  During the presentation, Karl was funny when he came in and said, "That’s were the pictures are."  Robot design was very cool because we had a call back.  Teamwork was very strange and quite, it was a relief to get out of there.  It was funny when call won the t-shirt with his one ticket.  Probably the best moment was when the judge said that we won the first place trophy and the invitation to Atlanta.  Then we helped take everything out, and Alan said that this is why we won, because we work hard and help other people out. 

Saturday

Last saturday, the Lego Guards went to the state competition, and came in first place with the director's award, and are now going to Atlanta, sometime in April.
