Theme: School Pride
Today we focused on forming partnerships and learning the Basics of FLL, design and mechanics.
Teamwork: The engineers-in-training were first sorted into partnerships, based on similar experience levels. Later we had them learn more about each other by working together and designing a button symbol to represent themselves as a team.
FLL: Trainees were introduced to both the basics of FIRST and the FIRST Lego League competition, then the two former FLL challenges (Body Forward and Climate Connections) and missions they will be pursuing for the remainder of the camp.
Mechanical: The trainees also had lessons on how to effectively brainstorm using the design process along with key mechanical components.
