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!
The following MySTEM Academy teams participated in the Western PA FLL Championship Scholastic Division on 12/14/2019:
Team B.O.T: This all elementary school students, and rookie team, excelled our expectations by receiving one of the Champions Award. In addition to that, they impressed the judges with their solution to help bikers at North Park. We are so proud of team B.O.T.
Triple B: This team finished second place in the Robot Game and received the First Place Award in Project Innovation. Congratulations!
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:
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 an 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.
