This is my belated update on the 2011 FIRST® LEGO® League Research and Robotics Food Factor Challenge (Food Safety).
Gentle Giant and Spunky competed in the provincials and won a programming award. They also won their division and ended up placing 4th overall. It was a very long and exciting day for the team and by the end of it, even their robot was ready for a nap!
After some time off from robotics and a little confusion regarding an opportunity to continue further in the competition, their team was invited to compete at the International Open in Germany this June. If anyone wants to donate funds to help their team represent Canada in this competition, you can do so here. Way to go, guys!
