FLL Robotics

Hi. We are the Moosekateers.

Our challenge this year is about Animal Allies.

Get ready. Get set. Roar! Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIES season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends. In the 2016 FIRST LEGO League Challenge, more than 28,000 teams of students age 9 to 16 will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIES. What might become possible when we learn to help each other?

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids in over 80 countries to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIES season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot GAME. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.

The Project

Our real-world Project is all about moose. Have you ever seen a moose? Moose can be found almost everywhere in Alaska. You can see them in and around many cities and towns. Around Anchorage, moose migrate towards lower elevations in the winter because of the snow depths in the Chugach Mountain Ranges. They are looking for more food and easier ground to walk on. This brings them into contact with people. The problem is, we can't tell them to stay out of populated areas, but people need to know what to do around moose on the loose.

We created a web page for the Municipality of Anchorage that shares information on moose interactions and what to do if you encounter a moose as you use the parks in Anchorage. Click here to see our web page. (COMING SOON)

Watch our project presentation to learn more about moose. (ALSO COMING SOON)


Robot Games

Here is our Robot. His name is Bullwinkle. He runs programs with an EV3 brick. Bullwinkle has a shield around his body that attachments can slide in and out of. This makes it easy to transition between mission programs. Bullwinkle has 3 motors and 1 sensor. We also have a 4th motor on an attachment.


Core Values

We have worked this season using the Core Values. Here are some ways we used them both on our team and in our everyday lives.

"We all made the posters for our presentation together. Some wrote the words, some traced the words in black, and some cut and glued on pictures."

"We try to be kind to each other at each practice. We succeed, even when we get carried away in our silliness."

"Landon reminds us everyday when we have practice."

"I used the process of making posters and writing a presentation in my reading and writing class."
