Challenges are out!!

Things are happening at the Metal Minds headquarters.

The challenges for the FIRST Lego League and the FIRST tech challenge have been released and  our teams are working at full throttle.

There is much more to the challenges than just showing up on competition day.  The FLL team is researching and creating their project, trialing ideas and learning to work as a unit.  The FTC team is keeping meticulous records and engineering solutions.

Gracious professionalism is at the core of FIRST.  The skills the members of our teams learn are skills they will draw on for life.

They are taking full advantage of this time to grow as a team and as individuals.

Brixhibtion and two worn out robots

A successful weekend at the Brixhibtion.  Over 7000 people came through the doors over the two days.

The teams two Sabrina robots wore out their plates and consumed numerous batteries.   People queued to have a go with the two robots who the team had set up to play footy.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our team.
