AboutOur team participated in FIRST Lego League for 5 years (2009- 2014). Our team name originated from our distinct height differences but over the years, it has come to mean more to us. Now we pride ourselves on our different individual strengths and our ability to use those strengths to benefit the team and to help others learn. During our final FLL season, at the MN State Tournament, we placed 1st Overall and earned an invite to the International Open Tournament in Toronto, Canada. We are excited to continue our Lego League experience by representing Minnesota at this tournament!
In 2013, we were thrilled to represent Minnesota in the North American Open in May 2013. At the North American Open, we became 2nd Place Overall Champions for our overall strength in all FLL categories.
In 2014, we placed First Overall in the MN State Tournament and earned an invite to represent MN in the International Open Tournament in Toronto, Canada in June 2014! There, we placed in the top five overall and won the 2nd Place Innovation award for our project.
Our robot is named StEV3, for Science & Technology Educational VEhicle. At the North American Open, we managed to put up a score of 435 points with STEVE during the timed runs. This was the best score we have gotten in tournament but STEVE technically(no pun intended) can get up to 510 points on the Senior Solutions board. During the Nature's Fury season, StEV3 was able to put up a high score of 521 in competition and consistently score above 500 points.
Our product during the Nature's Fury season was called the Aikido Flood Bag, a self-erecting floodwall that has the capability to protect people and cities from seasonal flooding. To learn more about this product and products from past Lego League seasons. please visit the "PROJECTS" page.
