Practice Competition

Finally! The practice competition at Saint Josephs High School had finally happened! It was a great event and we all got see a little bit of what the Regional and State competitions will be like. The whole gymnasium was roaring with excitement and I can definitely relate to how all the teams felt! I mean how good could it be spending your Sunday at an awesome FLL Robotics Competition. I was really proud with how both teams cheered for each other, and every time that it was one teams turn on the mat, we all raced to see how they would do! Our performance was also great, both teams excelled in how we finished missions efficiently and with finesse. Although we both had a little trouble getting our robot back to base once we completed the missions, I believe that in this last week both of our teams will do great!

Have an awesome week!

We had a very successful meeting on Sunday. For the mission team we finished a very hard section and for the project team we got some scripting done for the “skit” we are making for the competition. The highlight of the meeting was the AMAZING Tex-Mex Soup! We all loved the soup and the wraps. Thanks SO much Mrs. Baginski!!!!

10/17 STEM Meeting

Hi Everyone,
On October 17 we had some firemen come in to our STEM Meeting to talk about what they do and how to be safe during storms and fires. We had some pre-prepared questions that we handed out for people to ask. We all had a fun time asking great questions about what they do. We realized that they do a lot more than we thought. Not just rescuing a cat from a tree, but making sure everyone is safe during bad storms, and putting out fires. They even told us that on the average day, they get 2 to 3 calls! That must be a lot of work. Some days they get even MORE! We also had a fun time explaining about our progress for the Missions and the Project. We are getting so close to the competition but we will keep on working hard to get everything done.
