The FCC in USA is about to vote to get rid of the net neutrality, letting ISP's censor and throttle websites, and charge extra fees. This would allow ISP's to throttle this site, when they don't like the idea of every student learning about robotics, technologies and generally how to think.

The FCC will end net neutrality on Dec 14th if we don't convince Congress to stop them. Join the Protest and Contact Congress to save net neutrality.

If you are not from USA you should also be alarmed. Similar policies are already in the process of implementation in the other 59 countries in which is used. We should fight for our Internet freedom regardless of where we are from.

Build one

This is the first task. Where should you lift?. Try building one mission model with the part that you have. It could be just similar. No need to be the same.

Lift on the box

Using the boxes of the EV3 Mindstorms sets is also possible. 

Should you use the BOX robot

You can use the Box robot that we are using. Here is the course - Box Robot Two. Fewer parts and one motor. Simplifying a robot. We advise you to build it. But you could also use any robot that you have. You can even use a Five-Minute robot. 



Now, where should you lift this robot? First, it is possible that you have the mission model from the 2016/2017 Animal Allies Competition. But it's possible that you don't have such mission model so you can build one that looks like this. Or you can use one of the boxes for the Lego Mindstorms Robot. And you can try to lift the robot and hang it on the box. Or you can even place the box above something and then try to lift the robot. So, you can try with different things depending on what you have. It is even not necessary to use the Box Robot. You can use a simple FiveMinute Robot. And with this robot again you can try to add another motor and attachments for this robot that you can lift this robot on the box or on the attachment.
