FLL Mission Overview Part 7 - Wave Turbine
Objective: Move a team-designed Wave Turbine to the Ocean west (left) of the sandy beach.
Point Worth: 25 points.
Mission Location: Ocean area west (left) of the sandy beach. (The ocean around the House)
Estimated Difficulty Level: 2/10
Time Length Rating: Medium
Unique Challenge Aspects: The fact that you bring your own team designed mission makes this mission very unique. Though the design of the Wave Turbine is not scored, it would still be worthwhile to make a good design. The only requirement about the design of the Wave Turbine is that it must have at least two parts that can move independantly of each other.
Because the distance from Base to the ocean is a considerable amount, we have given this a medium time length rating. Also, because this mission must be team-designed and incorporates two moving parts, we have rated this mission's difficulty 2/10.
Jonathan's Comments: Although FLL encourages teams to make a meaningful design, they note that it won't be judged. Hence, it's most beneficial to make the model in a way that is most convenient for the robot to move.
