LEGO Robots and Cardinal Chaos

As I mentioned yesterday, today was a FIRST LEGO League competition at my high school. We called it Cardinal Chaos (kind of a play on words; because our school is Bishop Guertin High School, and most or all of our our teams are called the Cardinals), and 13 teams from area schools came to show us what robots they can create to solve the Oceans Odyssey challeges.

I was very impressed with their creations, because some of the teams were  very young. Three of the teams were home schooled, and one team (named the Right Angles) consisted of just three kids (they looked like siblings) who were probably between 6 and 10 years old. The robots were varied and amazing, and filled the 2-1/2 minutes of time with continuous action.

If you ever have a chance to see a FIRST LEGO competition, it’s well worth your time.

Questions and Answers:
How to Organize: If you’re referring to organizing an FLL team, first you need the kids, and the rest is fairly easy. Check out http://www.firstlegoleague.com

Photos: DOH! Yes, I’ll get some and put them in a gallary

How To Make Robots: Perhaps the most intriguing question. Since the competition involved 10-14 year olds, the answer is "Almost anyone." Can you give more information as to what you’re looking for? (Feel free to contact me directly.)
