Orion Oaks Lego Robotics League

The Epic Dragons and Infinity Blocks Lego Robotics teams have been working together with Coaches Michael Beem and John Griffith since early February.  Although the official  competition is held in the Fall, both teams used this “off-season” time to familiarize themselves with the Lego Robotics Kits and learn  basic programming using the Lego supplied software to  perform certain tasks.  The teams also learned about gearing and the use of the different sensors supplied with the Lego kit, including sound, light, touch, distance, and vision sensors, and applied them to perform specific tasks.  Both teams will put these new skills to test when they compete in the National Lego Robotics Challenge this Fall.  A special thanks goes to Continental Automotive Systems for their sponsorship of the Infinity Blocks Lego team.

Orion Oaks Team Lake Monster FIRST Lego League

Team Lake Monster started its first season with a brand new team of 13 first, second, and third graders from Orion Oaks Elementary. After building all the mission modules for the 2013 FLL robot game challenge, Nature's Fury, the team got to work thinking about which challenges to complete. Several robots were built with interchangeable attachments to master the natural disasters and preparedness tasks in the robot game and beyond. The team learned about gears, wheels, motors, and sensors while developing skills in robot programming and modular design. They also had a lot of fun exploring and free building with Legos! The team is grateful for the support of their sponsors Lake Monster Labs and Lake Orion Lions/Lioness Club and to the parents who donated time and money to make it all possible.
