"Bear" with me...I'm a little behind with this.
The Texas Lone Star F.I.R.S.T. LEGO League Regional Championship Tournament was Sat. December 2nd, 2006 at the University of Houston. This championship is the largest FLL robotics tournament in Texas. 76 teams (1000 participants) attended this year for the fun and fast-paced action. The awesome competition was fueled by the excitement and high energy of the fantastic students. The place was wild! Here’s the gist... 1st Place went to the Pirates (Homeschool); 2nd Place went to the Nanobears (the team I mentored)...
Team 724 the Clear Creek Independent School District's Brookwood Elementary School Nanobears consisting of 10 5th grade roboticists. As the event rolled on the Nanobears were gaining some recognition and camera time. In total the Nanobears’ teamwork snagged 3 trophies! A "Robot Performance Finalist Award" for the best score on the competition field (their best run achieved 310 points), a "Project Finalist Award" for quality research, innovative solutions and creative presentations that best reflected an in-depth understanding of the various scientific disciplines and issues involved with the Challenge Project (Nano Technology), and the tournament's "2nd Place Champion's Award". Coach Barrington could not have been more proud of the team! It was a wonderful experience to mentor the Nanobears for this FLL season. These rookies achieved quite a few spectacular accomplishments during their first season of FLL action.
Congratulations! GO NANOBEARS!!
