‘Da Vincibles’ Team Wins FLL Robotic Challenge

Santa Barbara-based team, “The Da Vincibles,” bagged the Champions’ Award in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League (FLL) robotics contest, which was held in Camarillo.

The Champions’ Award is the most celebrated award offered to the winning team in FLL, honoring the ultimate accomplishment of the FIRST mission and the core values of FLL. The winners were acknowledged for their obsession to instigate awareness of science, technology, analytical skills, teamwork and cordial professionalism. The award is based on four significant criteria including Teamwork, Project, Robot Design and Robot Performance.

Theme of 2010 Body Forward Challenge is Biomedical Engineering. The contest has two rounds- the Robot Game and Project phase. Teams will be provided with a real scientific issue. They are supposed to build and program an autonomous robot to achieve the specified task. In the project phase, teams elucidate several solutions to a problem identified by them.

The FLL challenge enables the students to investigate the field of Biomedical engineering to determine innovative methods for enhancing the body’s ability, surmounting genetic predilections and repairing wounds, in view of leading healthy lives.

‘The Da Vincibles’ team will participate in the Los Angeles Region FLL Championship Tournament, which will be conducted on December 18 and the winning team will contend at the FIRST LEGO World Festival, Missouri, between April 27 and 30, 2011.
