About us
thumb2002CityPresentations.jpg We, the LEGO Mountaineers, are a group of six girls who are home-educated. Our parents brought us together to participate in the LEGO Robotics League. The purpose of the league is to involve children, ages 9-14, in math, science, robotics, and public speaking.

Each team is given the task of programming a robot using LEGOS and motors. Computers are used to program the robot to complete various assigned challenges. We are scored by the number of challenges we can successfully complete. As you can see in our team picture, we are given a competition mat and a list of obstacles to build from LEGOS. During competition we are not allowed to touch the robot, other than to turn it on, our computer programming must be completed and as perfect as can be by the time of the competition.

In addition to the robot competition, each team is challenged to tackle a problem that a major city might face, and how robotics can be used to solve the problem. The team will appear before a panel of judges and present their solution.

We are also graded on team spirit—of which we have a tremendous amount!
