Grauer's Middle School Robotics Team Competes at Legoland - December 2018
From Peggy Gardner, Middle School Robotics Coach:
Congratulations to Grauer's Middle School Robotics team, the Grauer GorilLegos #3195, for competing in the First Lego League (FLL) SoCal Regional Tournament at Legoland on Saturday, December 8. The Middle School Robotics team members are Gabriel C. '23, Ethan D. '23, John Joseph H. '23, Adrien C. '23, Michael L. '23, Symphonie L. '24, Eli D. '24, and Nicholas H. '24.
The team started off the day with 3 rounds of judging, where they had to stand in front of the judges and talk about 3 topics: how their team used the Core Values of FLL; their Project presentation that proposed a solution to create Astro Gummies for astronauts to eat in their spacesuits; and their Robot design and programming.
Then, they competed in 3 rounds of actual robot competition, where Adrien and Ethan ran the robot through missions on stage in the Legoland Showplace Theater. Their top score was 81 points, and the team finished the competition in 37th place out of the 54 teams who were competing that day.
As we finish out this Middle School Robotics season, I'm so proud of our team members for working together so well, for supporting each other, and for being such an awesome team! We would like to thank our mentor Morgan Brown; our wonderful parent mentor Paula Hamma who helped our team so much with the Project and Core Values; and all of our team parents for their support during our competition season. We couldn't have done it without all of them!
