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.
