Are you ready for the new FIRST LEGO League Challenge 2021-2022 season CARGO CONNECT?
We have been working hard to make some resources to help your team be successful in your journey this season.
Innovation Project: Building Problem Solvers
We created a video on the Innovation Project and how it can help build your team into problem solvers. We will walk teams through what is involved in the Innovation Project from identifying a problem, designing a solution, creating a prototype, sharing and iterating your solution, and communicating your work with others.
Innovation Project: Create and Iterate Your Prototype * NEW
We created a video on how how to create and iterate your team’s Innovation Project as you progress through the season by using one of our own past Innovation Projects as an example. We will talk about how we went from just a drawing of our solution idea, to a proof-of-concept prototype, to a full-sized functional model.
Robot Game: Field Kit Tips
We created a video talking about the robot game field kit with some building tips (if your team has not started building it yet), along with some build aspects to check for on every mission model to prevent your team from running into issues with incorrectly built mission models. Some of these are checks that your team may need to do all season long. In order to program your robot to be successful, your team needs to start with an error-free robot game field, and this video will help you achieve that!
Core Values Teamwork Challenges
One aspect of FIRST LEGO League that has always been fun is doing core values challenges within our teams. Core values challenges are great ways to build teamwork skills and grow closer as a team. However, social distancing makes it hard to participate in many of the standard ones. In this article, we will share with you 3 core values challenges that we came up with for our own team that can be completed virtually (such as over Zoom, Facetime, etc.) or in-person (with masks and social distancing of course!).
