FIRST Lego League

2014 – “First Class”

The 2014 challenge, “First Class”, incorporated elements from science, design and learning. The RoboRoos FLL team competed in November, 2014 at the South Australian tournament, along with almost 30 other teams. They successfully achieved the ‘Gracious Professionalism’ award and qualified to go to the nationals in Sydney in December, 2014.

The team showed excellent team spirit when they arrived in Sydney, discovering the robot’s attachments had been left behind in Adelaide and got together madly remaking Lego parts on the eve of the competition. They once again excelled, receiving the Judges award for ‘Creative Thinking’.

2015 – “Trash Trek”

The 2015 challenge, “Trash Trek”, was based around recycling, following the theme set by the earlier FIRST Robotics Competition challenge. The RoboRoos took part once more, competing in the regional competition and picking up the award for the best presentation. This took them to the nationals in Sydney, where once again the team took their robot (the “Tiny Round Unicorn”) to compete against the best in Australia. There they picked up the Gracious Professionalism award and were one of ten teams chosen to compete in the worlds.

Unfortunately, timetabling schedules meant that we had to end our campaign in Sydney, but being selected was a wonderful reward for all the work that the students and mentors and put into the competition.
