Team SPORK attended the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) kickoff event in Greensboro, where our students gave a presentation analyzing and breaking down the INTO ORBIT game rules to FLL teams. SPORK members also led a break down of the FLL Kit of Parts, where our students went through the components available for use on FLL robots. These include the EV3 brick (the controller), motors, lego pieces, and an array of sensors such as color, bump, and ultra-sonic sensors.
Additionally, one of Team SPORK’s mentors, Mr. Lashley, gave a presentation on “Awesome FLL Presentation Styles”, regarding successful ways for FLL teams to excel in the project portion of the competition. The FLL project has students creating innovative solutions to real world problems, and accounts for 1/3 of an FLL Team’s judging.
