On December 1st, SBR hosted its first LEGO League challenge practice at Hollister High School, and it was a blast! The event brought together twenty plus students from across San Benito County for a day of discovery, learning, and fun.
The challenge practice began with a presentation by SBR's experienced coaches and mentors, who shared their knowledge and advice on this year's FIRST Lego League Challenge themed: "Super Powered." The mentors covered everything from the rules and scoring criteria to tips and tricks for building and programming robots. The presentation was informative and engaging, and the young FLL teams were eager to learn and ask questions.
After the presentation, the teams were split into groups and given their challenge kits. They used the rest of practice building and programming their robots. It was amazing to see the young teams working together, brainstorming ideas, and problem-solving.
Throughout the day, SBR mentors from the high school FRC team were on hand to offer guidance and support to the FLL teams. They shared their own experiences and helped the teams troubleshoot any issues they encountered. It was clear that the mentors and coaches were passionate about helping the next generation of robotics enthusiasts learn and grow.
Overall, the first LEGO League challenge practice was a huge success. The young FLL teams had a great time and learned a lot, and the SBR mentors enjoyed sharing their knowledge and passion for robotics. It was a day of discovery and fun, and we can't wait for the next challenge practice!
