West TN FLL would like to thank Todd Taylor (who was the organizer of the event), Austin Peay State University (for hosting), the coaches of all the teams, and most especially the volunteers, judges and refs for their time and effort.
The first FLL workshop in the Jackson area was held last Saturday (October 28th). Area students were able to develop their programming skills including programing their robots to follow a line, a more advanced robot tasks required for a successful FLL season.
Thanks to Dr Reddick who hosted the event at the UofM Lambuth campus. We would also like to thank Dr. Londino who assisted at the workshop and is mentoring the St Mary’s FLL team.
Coaches, need to learn more about EV3 Programming? Did you know that Linda.Com has a course on EV3’s? Did you know if you have a Memphis Library Card you have access to Linda.com for FREE.
Go HERE to access Linda.com though the Memphis Library Website (you will need your card number and your pin number to log in). Once you are logged in, search for EV3 Robot or click here.
Just got this from HQ:
DEADLINE FIRST® LEGO® League Team Registration. We are going to officially close all team registrations for all Regions on Friday, October 27 at 3:00 pm EST.
Please contact us (use form on the right) if you have any questions or are having issues with the registration process.
A number of the teams at the E-Day scrimmage did not know that the “Pump System” was supposed to be attached to the WALL of the field via Dual Locks as shown below:
(as per HYDRO DYNAMICS Field Setup Guide page 10)
This actually makes M03 – Pump Addition easier so make sure you do this on your fields.
Thank you to all the teams that came out today for the University of Memphis / Herff College Engineering Day Scrimmage. All the teams did really well, but a special shout out to Team 22626 – Cardinals Black for having the best run of the day!
All the pics taken at E-Day can be found HERE.
