Yesterday, we hosted two FLL Robotics teams from St. Mary-Basha Catholic School, Chandler.
It was the first scrimmage we hosted at Salt River Elementary. It was a lot of fun, and students got to see how nervous their potential competitors –or ‘co-petitors’ in FLL-speak — were.
Did the bots under-perform? Sure! But that’s part of the learning experience of a scrimmage, where you get to fix the things that worked one week ago, but didn’t seem to do well under pressure.
St. Mary’s Teams are: Fantastic 5 and Tech Stars
Salt River’s Teams are: Red Mountain Razors, and XTreme Sharkbots
We began with a short presentation by Ruben Gameros, from ASU, on ‘Swarm Robotics’ part of the post-graduate work he is working on.
