Our one team member 'not' at 5th grade camp this week made some HUGE progress last night on the robot!  Techno-Brick Rocked!

Great work!

The numbers are in! Crushing Techno Tigers Donate to MS Society

Well, the final numbers are in and the Crushing Techno Tigers are responsible for raising $285 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  The team walked in the Walk MS event earlier this year in Troy MI.

The team showed up on a cool windy morning and walked the route a nice size crowd!  We all wore our CTT shirts and got a nice response as we did our team "HOO-HAH" cheer :)

This is a great group of kids and giving back to in this way shows their heart & spirit.

Congratulations team!

P.S. It should be noted that we had a few 'Hippies'
join us too!  ;)

Robots, projects & teamwork!

I am really proud of these amazing kids. Great work last night & more showed up tonight @ CTT HQ to continue the effort. Our season is starting to really progress in all areas.

In what I consider to be the most challenging robot course to date we are on the cusp of pulling in a good amount of points. What a productive two nights!

Great kids, amazing team, impressive results.

Tournament prep!

So much to do and so little time to do it!

Today a few of the CTT members came over to play LEGO's with me :)

Made some progress on the robot and some things are starting to come together.  However there a long way to go before tournament day.

Looking forward to tomorrow's meeting :)

Teamwork Challenges !!!

To get ready for the upcoming tournament season we are engaging in various 'teamwork' activities.  It has been a while since we had one and at this meeting the team quickly demonstrated to me why we had such a great first season.  To coin a known FLL phrase...   "We are a TEAM" :)

While there is certainly things we can and should improve upon, the kids did a wonderful job handling the 'monkey wrenches' i threw at them.

I am really lucky to be working with these kids!

THEY are teaching ME a lot!

Project Progress

Well, all the research is starting to make a difference.

We have a topic, researched it a lot, have a possible innovative solution and an interview set up to discuss it :)

The kids are feeling more confident as we move along :)
