Saturday was the First Lego League North Carolina District 5 Regional Qualifier Tournament. We signed in at 7:00 AM (really early!), then we had our judgings starting at 10. The Robot Design judging was first, then Core Values, and Project was last. At 12:30, there was a parade of teams, and the Robot Performance section got under way.
We scored a 71 in our first run, an 82 in our second run, and a 91 in our final run. The top score in Robot Performance was 217. However, we scored a 4 or a 5 out of five in all of our judgings. We won the Project Research Award, and received one of the ten invitations to the State Tournament in Greensboro, NC, in January.This just goes to prove that the Robot performance score isn't everything.
We will be taking a couple of weeks off before preparing for the State Tournament. Everyone is SO excited!
