I was not too involved in the robot design, other than to show them how to map out the features that they wanted their robot to accomplish and to encourage them to design an integrated robot with no detachable parts. They came up with a very clever design, using the new LEGO NXT robotics kit. I'm particularly impressed with their multi-function arm. Apparently, the judges were, too!
I'll let the girls tell you about the event in their own words. I hope you will visit their blog site and offer a few words of encouragement. (If you want to follow along, be sure to subscribe to their RSS feed as we will add movies soon.)
