There are many tricks to using the Gyro sensor effectively:
Try this exercise with your teammates to see if they understand the concepts needed to program the Gyro.
Match the 3 comments to the programming sequence that implements the description.
Four teams competing in a December FLL qualifier were all well prepared for their robot game and received the top 4 robot game scores of the 24 teams at the event. They each thoroughly read the rules though had chose different priorities, so only 2 of these 4 teams with the top scores were able to advance to the regional championship.
Plan your City Shaper mission to get from base to the ramp using the simple EV3 program above. Apply power to both wheels to make your robot go straight. Apply power in opposite directions for it to turn.
To do this you will calculate how far your robot travels per rotation of its wheel given the wheel diameter, and how many rotations it takes to move a full turn given the distance between your 2 wheels. Then use that to calculate the rotations for each step above.
You may need to know that 1in=2.54cm, 1 FLU (Fundamental Lego Unit) = 0.8 cm and that circumference = 3.14 x diameter.
Four teams in Austin wanted to get a jump start on their FLL Project for the 2019-2020 City Shapers FLL Season. The challenge hadn’t been released yet, but they did not want that to stop them from practicing their research skills. What better way to research city problems then to look up the latest Bond Election approved by the City of Austin for 2018. Identify which team choose which bond programs from https://www.austintexas.gov/sites/default/files/files/Finance/CFO/2018-Bond/COA_2018Bond_Booklet.pdf and what each bond program was called and cost the taxpayers of Austin.
Most people already know that robotics is a great way to develop skills in STEM or STEAM, but FIRST Lego League is unique in its elevation of soft skills such as teamwork to a top-level judged criteria through its Core Values Awards category. Match these four FLL teams with their team size, Core Values focus and favorite team building game.
A team from each of the four subregions of the Texas ACES Region started preparing for their 2019-2020 City Shapers FLL Season in a different month in 2019. These 4 teams each focused on a different competition area: Core Values, Project, Robot Design and Robot Game. These four areas are now equally weighted toward the advancement criteria. They each also took a different approach on how their team would stand out in their Project judging.
Four FLL teams preparing for the 2019-2020 City Shapers FLL Season each focus on a different area of the competition: Core Values, Project, Robot Design and Robot Game. These four areas are now equally weighted toward the advancement criteria. Each team has all from the same grade level: 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th grade. To start off their team meetings they each practiced a different form of programming automation.
