The First Lego League 2012 Senior Solutions mat, mission model Lego pieces and build instructions arrived in a small box today at our coach’s house.
Katie and Matthew cleaned up the lab so our coach would open the box. An email from FLL had warned coaches to open the box and lay out the mat upon arrival so the wrinkles and creases would relax. The mission mat was folded in the box, so Matthew and Patrick laid out the new mat on our FLL table. Katie will publish a photo of the mat tomorrow. We don’t have enough room to do MoonBots and FLL in our lab so we will use the lab for FLL since the FLL table is there. We will do our MoonBots Phase II project in the spare room next to our FLL lab.
We had planned to wait to build the mission models until the FLL 2012 challenges were announced on August 28th. Seeing the box of bagged Legos calling to us to be built; is like having unopened Christmas presents in the house. Our coach contacted the rest of the team and we now have a meeting and build scheduled for tomorrow. As we build, it will be fun to guess the robot game challenge missions.
