Tim Watkins, Dec 2015
An AMAZING FIRST LEGO League day! I am so proud how all the Minions performed! It highlighted a wonderful year of hard work and dedication that turned into some grand accomplishments.
The Yellow LEGO Minions ended up the overall Champion's Awards with the best display of Gracious Professionalism, top performer in Project, Core Values, and Robot Design. They also received the Robot Performance Award for achieving 620 points. The Purple LEGO Minions received the Robot Design award... an awesome accomplishment for a group of 4th graders and a very smart 5th grader. Their robot ended up with a score of 488. Both will advance on to North Idaho Regional (most likely January 23rd) at University of Idaho.
We owe some of our success to you and your help. Greatly appreciate how you mentored both teams with quick response, lessons, and new ideas. Something the coaches definitely do not have the time to think of their own.
Key to success - USE THE SENSORS... especially the Gyro! :)
