Fulton Science Academy Private School is pleased to announce that FSA Robotics Team LGKnighterz competed at FIRST Lego League Super-Regionals on Saturday, January 12, 2013 and won “Best Robot Performance Award”.
With this result, FSA robotics team is qualified to compete at State Level Tournament on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at Georgia Tech Student Center Ballroom.
Congratulations to these students, their parents and our coach Mr. Kaya for this wonderful achievement.
What is the Challenge?
In early fall, FLL releases a Challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic.
Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Project (Why a Project in a Robotics Competition?), and theFLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values.
Past Challenges have been based on topics such as nanotechnology, climate, quality of life for the handicapped population, and transportation. By designing our Challenges around such topics, participants are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen Challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM principles that naturally come from participating in a robotics program. Team members also learn valuable life and employment skills which will benefit them no matter which career path they choose.
