We were so excited to present on the subject of building for reliability in the FLL Share & Learn Community Webinar Series. We hope that you find it useful regarding how to build a sturdy and durable robot and how to optimize your robot’s build for mission consistency.
Are you a rookie team wondering about the different parts of FIRST LEGO League Challenge? Are you a returning team looking to learn more about the Innovation Project? Watch our brief video to find out more and hear our tips!
COVID-19 has changed lives all over the world in many ways. We are very grateful that FIRST LEGO League will be able to continue this year. Obviously, though, the season this year is going to look very different for all teams.
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!).
Today we are going to talk about “MyBlocks.” MyBlocks allow you to create your own programming blocks (AKA subroutines or functions) made up of any combination of EV3 blocks already available! How cool is that? As you program your EV3, MyBlocks can be very helpful and can help take your code to the next level!
We hope our City Shaper tips will help all of you at your competitions! Here is 2019’s last Moment Maker Tip!
Sometimes when EV3 robots are turning on, they glitch and get stuck in the “Starting” phase. It is important to turn on your robot early so you have time to fix this problem, should it happen.
To restart your EV3 without erasing all of the brick programs, follow these steps:
- Hold down the Back, Center, and Left buttons all at the same time.
- Wait until the screen goes blank before releasing the Back button.
- When the screen says “Starting” again, release the other two buttons.
