A YouTube Channel is born.

There are a few videos on the YouTube Channel. One from the kids working over the summer and one that I was playing around with to tell friends an family about FLL without sound.

Not much there but we're working on it :)

Adjustment to the attachment.

Today Lizard and I made an adjustment to the attachment on the robot to get even more points. We had to find the correct angles to make the new Lego's we added to the attachment fit. It took a while but we figured it out.

More points !

Well, a CTT member came over to CTT-HQ the other day and made some LARGE strides with things that have been troubling the team. We now have a redesigned attachment, a different attachment 'adjusted' and a few programs worked on.

This work brings the probability of many more table points with the robot.

"Dhruv On The Rules"

This is one of the team's most notable parts of our meetings known by the team as: "Dhruv On The Rules"

During this part of our meetings we get caught up-to-date on all of the rule updates and clarifications as they are posted on the web. Dhruv has done an excellent job this season of keeping us informed of any and all updates!

Fun, focused and busy

The past week has been fun and busy. We have been programming our robot to do our missions and we have also been working on our project. We had our group interview and I interviewed someone myself. It was fun talking to someone about our project.

CRUNCH TIME - Preparation for tournaments begins

Things are really coming together!

Our programming and robot missions are getting closer with every meeting. We now have a few things fully accomplished and working on more! It seems that we are making great progress and overcoming significant obstacles at each meeting.

Having done some interviews and a lot of research is really paying off. We are now working on our project presentation that we will have to give at the tournament. The kids are really having a blast with this portion. This group of kids is really great! It is exciting to see the kids get just as excited about working on the research project as they are about working on the robot!
