2022-2023 FLL Challenge
It’s full speed ahead for the 2022-2023 Robotics Challenge: SUPERPOWERED!
This year, the teams are explored where energy comes from and how it is distributed, stored, and used. After then putting their superpowered creativity to work to innovate for a better energy future, teams investigated the essential role energy plays in keeping our world running in the three elements of the 2022-23 SUPERPOWERED Challenge by:
1. Designing, building and programming an autonomous robot to score points in the Robot Game
2. Creating an innovative solution to the challenge of ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.
3. Demonstrating FLL core values by helping each other, sharing ideas with others and embracing the spirit of friendly competition.
The teams have worked since August to design, build and program robots to accomplish the robotic missions in the international competition and the innovation project. Team members have put in many extra hours beyond their weekly after school scheduled time. Team members describe FLL as "the hardest fun they will ever have?"!
There were 6 teams this year with middle school and elementary schjool students. Some high school students who are FLL alumni volunteered their time to be mentors. Here are the results of the regional tournament with 4 of our teams advancing to the AZ State Championship. Congratulations to all of teams, coaches and volunteers!
