Finished 13th at Northern Lights

We arrived at the Northern Lights competition in Duluth on Wednesday night, with 23 students, 5 mentors and two robots. Our competition bot – Watt – performed beautifully and got lots of complements. Our team played hard, swiftly moving gears across the field and climbing the rope to board the airship. We finished 13th – not bad!

The group came home tired but jubilant, bubbling with ideas of things to do before our next competition in Minneapolis.

Introducing First Steamworks!

On Saturday, the 7th of 2017, the new game, FIRST Steamworks, was released and explained in full detail to participating teams! We, along with multiple other St. Paul-based teams, attended Kickoff at Central High School. This year’s game involves gathering resources to prepare an airship for liftoff. After viewing the game’s animation and reading the rules, we split into small groups and went through a structured creative process After this we came together to combine our ideas. This involved team-wide discussion and goal-setting to decide on the direction of our robot’s design. Full steam ahead!


Mythical Robotics Lego League Teams Competed!

All four Mythical Robotics Lego League teams competed on Sunday at Capitol Hill Magnet: Buick Builders, Brick Heads, Phoenix, and the Avalon Reapers. They did a fantastic job with their robots, projects, and core values. It was also a blast to be together, along with FTC Athena who came to do a demo.
