Congratulations to the SMS Eaglebots Robotics team. They went to the First Lego League DC regional tournament at Norview High School on November 9th. This robotics competition was themed hydro dynamics and included three parts. First a robot design and programing challenge where the students ran programs on a mission table head to head with other teams. They earned points for completing missions. Second was a project and presentation. The students chose to find a new way to get water and did a skit where they walked through a 60 in diameter pipe to show the size our Lake Gaston pipeline pipe. They then demonstrated how it is possible to get enough water from the air using a dehumidifier and filter system to run a house. Our experts were a company from Florida called Drinkable Air. The students loved connecting with this company for the project. The third part was a Core Values challenge. They were given a problem to solve in front of a panel of judges. They were judged on the process of solving the problem and how they worked together as a team.
