Arizona FIRST® LEGO® League
Starting with this season, teams will now have a presentation for their robot. Robot Design judging rooms at qualifier and the state tournament for this season will not have the game board in the room. Judges will want teams to focus on explaining their design processes, decisions and journey. We strongly recommend:
- Teams prepare a brief (5 minute) verbal presentation describing their strategy, design and programming (see optional robot design executive summary for details)
- Teams fill out and bring robot design worksheet (optional)
- Teams print a copy of programming
- Teams bring robot and attachments for display purpose only
A link is provided below that your team can fill out (typed or handwritten is okay) and hand to the judges for use in deliberations. This document is supplementary to your presentation.
If you are looking for the Lego EV3 programming videos referenced in the engineering notebook, you can find each of them here.
The robot portion of FLL has a large programming component. We want to provide resources to help you navigate this. STEMcentric is a great place to start:
FLL Team LCats has released several videos covering EV3 programming. Some examples include line followers and turn-in-place algorithms.
2017 VISTA member & UC Berkeley computer science graduate Brad Voracek developed this series of presentations and sample code to connect EV3 programming to key computer science concepts:
LEGO Education also provides an excellent curriculum tied to national standards, which lets students work on EV3 robots to learn Engineering concepts. Previously only available for $600 per classroom, they now offer the curriculum for free
For new coaches, FIRST offers a class called FIRST Steps which runs you through the common practices when starting a new team
