Testing the Ultrasonic wall following programme - it should stay the specified distance from the wall and NOT CRASH!  #welearnfromourmistakes

The new club try-outs board is complete, the challenge is to complete the circuit in the shortest time.  Follow any lines, take any route but note that some routes have time penalties and others time bonuses.

  • September 2014 - We start this club.  We have 1 robot and have to start from scratch.

  • Autumn Half Term break     - Mr Percy finished building the table. (check for splinters)

  • Autumn 2nd Half  Term      - We start our Door of Wisdom- the cupboard door that displays our Team Values.

  • December 2014 - We watch the national FLL competition and acquire a 2014 board. We research sensors and practice line following designs.

  • January 2015 - Greenhill Primary School's FLL Team -THE GREENHILL GIZMOS - visit us and run a workshop with our team before they fly to America for the FLL WORLD FINALS!!!

  • February 2015 - We complete several of the 2014 missions as practice for next year.
