FLL at Intel

The Janksters had a wonderful time this weekend helping children in FLL (FIRST Lego League) at Intel during their “Trash Trek” challenge.

Our members were happy to teach parents and FLL students about our 2015 FRC robot, Grace. They conversed with the Janksters about the various mechanisms and functions before driving the robot on their own.

We also held a concessions stand where we sold breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Our candy robots offered a fun treat to hungry persons during a long day of competition.

Additionally, Team 1967 made sure to incorporate all aspects of their team with our “Make a Button” station, where students and parents were able to design their own button with our guidance. Imagination was at its best, as individuals participated in a more artistic part of robotics and proudly wore their button throughout the competition.

Finally, the Janksters were delighted to showcase the October Projects that the rookies and veterans were given three weeks to build. The ping-pong ball shooter was very interactive and gave a sneak peek into the team work and thinking skills gained in a robotics team, hopefully encouraging FLL students to participate in FRC as well.

All in all, it was a very successful and stimulating weekend, leaving the Janksters excited to help again next year!
