Control Freaks

So, folks, once again I have been fairly absent from the blog-o-sphere.

I have a good excuse, I swear! See this little guy? He’s a Lego Mindstorms robot, and he requires a lot of attention.

Why? Because he is going to a competition on Saturday! I am mentoring a team of 10 fifth graders this year on their FIRST Lego league team. We’ve been working really hard to get this robot finished, and to make him do the things that the team wants him to do. Our team is designing all the arms and attachments for the robot, as well as writing programs to make the robot accomplish tasks on the game table.

We’ve also been working really hard on our team project.

These kids blow me away. They are fifth graders, and their ability to solve problems and come up with innovative solutions is just incredible.

I can’t wait to go to competition Saturday and watch them enjoy the experience. They are going to do great!

Go Control Freaks!
