Lego Lock-In

Today I am hosting a Lego Lock-In!

Team Storm System goes to competition in just over a week, and we have a lot to polish before that day.

In order to avoid trying to schedule a bunch of meetings next week, I decided to do most of it in one large lump. Hence, a sleep over. A working sleepover. The boys will arrive about 6pm, and we will get going on the robot game at 6:30, and off we go!
We will cap off a night of working with ice cream sundaes and a movie. Then, BEDTIME!!! And, yes, I am going to be mean about it!  After all, we have to spend most of the next day with each other. Since they normally want to strangle each other by the end of a regular Friday meeting, sleep is imperative to survival at our sleepover!

9 boys. 1 robot.

One of the boys asked me - "Do we have a chance of winning anything?"

After the Qualifier, I will never answer "no" again. But the Qualifier was 28 teams. This time there will be 52 teams, and all won a place in this.
Do they have a chance? Of course. With the research project.
Will it happen? Who knows. Anything is possible. We are not expecting anything.

But for our first season, we have done really well and have nothing to regret.

See ya on the other side!
