Garbage Mountain Idea

Hi Alex,
One of the things we talked about during the meeting was that prototypes give us a better chance of doing better in the competition. Although your idea is great, It is not very realistic. We would not bring a garbage mountain into the judging room and present them that idea because it would be impossible. For example, during the second year of our FLL team being together we did not notice that a real prototype would help us do better. It turned out that year we did not do very well in the project because we didn’t have a prototype. The next year we knew we had to change something so we created an actual prototype to show the judges. We made the prototype because it was a model of what would help senior’s hear better. Instead of saying we could make a good high quality “hearing hat”, we did make it and that is what the judges are looking for.

I hope to see you at the next STEM meeting and we can talk more about it then.


Hi everyone,

Just some quick notices I think all of STEM club should know. 1) When a post has STEMadmin as its publisher it means that it is a notice from Eddie and I. Otherwise, the publisher of the post will be from someone in our club with first initial, last name. For example,  aruhl, djohnson, rson.  2) Although we already have a sufficient supply of water bottle packages, please remember to bring at least one to West Side Bagels on Thursday  at 9:00 am.  3) If you have a cooler or a wagon please bring it. We might be having last second additions to people who can help us which can also mean more groups. 4) Lastly, if you have a cell phone please bring it to West Side. If you do not have one or will not be able to bring it, that is okay. We will need cell phones when we run out of water bottles, or glow sticks etc.
