FLL 2017 Challenge - HYDRODYNAMICS
Every year, FIRST LEGO League releases a Challenge
based on a real-world scientific topic. Each Challenge has three
parts: the Robot Game, the Project, and the Core Values.
The theme of the 2017-2018 season's Challenge is Hydrodynamics.
The participating teams need to learn all about water - how we find,
transport, use, or dispose of it. The posters below will give you some
ideas what we were working on.
Reserch Project: Lead in Drinking Water
The drinking water in our schools go way above the safe lead level and will cause both mental and physical problems for young kids. We did a thorough research on lead effects and current solutions. Based on our findings we came up with a innovative design that will effectively filter out the lead from the drinking water. It won the Innovative Solution Award for our club.
Robot Design Executive Summary
For the robot game, we arranged the order of missions based on distances and designed the attachments based on the actual movements required to complete individual missions. We agreed on the base robot to be used for all missions so that we only need to change the attachments between runs. We also used Google Drive to share mission software among the team. The entire robot practices were an intense but exciting experience!
Not only we worked as a team by following the FLL Core Values, we also applied these values into our daily lives out of the robotics club. We respect our parents, coaches, mentors and fellow students. We help each other to work out solutions. We honored Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition throughout the whole process. And we have tons of fun working together!
