2004 Jr. Robotic Challenge Theme
thumbNoLimits.jpg We held our first meeting today. After reviewing our team objectives we opened the kit of parts and started assembling our playing field. We won't know what the actual challenge will be until September 15th, but we do have this theme information from the U.S. FIRST FLL web site:

2004 Theme:
In this year's challenge, FLL teams will find ways to help people with different levels of physical ability.

Premise:
The dream of a modern society is one of equal access for all. Society as a whole benefits when creativity, technology and open minds come together to help make that equality possible for all people, regardless of physical differences.

Focus:
Many people have difficulty moving or walking, or trouble reading a distant sign or climbing stairs. The 2004 FLL Challenge is to examine these seemingly simple tasks in a new light and explore how technology and human thought can work together to create equal access for all people.

2004 Challenge:
Each FLL team will build and program a robot that addresses the specific needs of people who face physical challenges in today's society. Teams will research and present robotics technology solutions to help individuals in their community perform the everyday actions that many people today take for granted.

The Annual Challenge

The Challenge is the annual game revealed to FLL teams each September during our on line kick off. Teams must determine a strategy to accomplish various Challenge missions and accumulate points. In addition, the Challenge theme and related Research Assignment requires teams to investigate current issues facing our modern world. This combined process brings the reality of science and technology to children on a more intimate, hands-on level.
