Congratulations to MySTEM Academy 2019-2020 FLL Teams!

Our 5 FLL teams received a total of 9 awards in 12/2019

We are so proud of MySTEM Academy First Lego League Teams. They participated in the Western PA Champions at Sewickley Academy on 12/14/2019 Scholastic Division, and 12/15/2019 Open Division.

 

All our Open Division teams received 5 callbacks in every single category: Robot Design, Robot Programming, Robot Strategy, Core Values and Project Innovation. They worked very hard to embrace all parts of First Lego League:


Raptorbots: Finished first in the Robot Game with a solid 500 points. They were awarded first place in Project Innovation and ended up by receiving of one of the Champions Award. Raptorbots mentored a new start-up FLL Team at the Provident Charter School for children with dyslexia in Pittsburgh, PA. They raised $1,500 through a Trivia Night that was then donated to Provident Charter School’s new FLL team for start-up costs and other FLL expenses. What an incredible season!


Team N.E.X.T: They impressed the judged with a well-designed robot finishing top 6 in the Robot Game. Team N.E.X.T. received the First Place Award in Robot Strategy. What an awesome Robot!
 

YinZ GirlZ: These girls were like a machine, working as a team to accomplish every single task. They received the First Place Award in Core Values teamwork. Way to go, girls!

FIRST LEGO LEAGUE

FLL is an international program created by inventor Dean Kamen to promote science, technology, engineering, and math among children ages 9-14. FLL events consist of ​3 components:

  • A ​robot game, where team members build and program LEGO robots to ​solve various missions;
  • A ​project, where they research a problem of their choice related to the year​'s​ theme​;
  • Core Values, where they learn to work as a team and to compete in a spirit of friendly "coopertition."​

​FLL is meant as an opportunity for children to learn science and technology, teamwork, project management, decision-making, and other important tools they'll need to succeed in the professional world. MySTEM Academy focuses on mentoring the children to succeed, not on winning a​n award. Winning is a consequence of how much effort the children invest in solving the ​robot game, conducting and presenting the ​project, and practicing core values.
