1st Annual S.A.Y. Detroit Robotics Invitational

May 20, 2017

The S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center is pleased to invite Michigan FIRST LEGO League teams to our first annual invitational in preparation for the coming FLL qualifying season.

In two challenge rounds, each team will design and build a robot using LEGO Mindstorms® as well as research, develop, and present a solution to a research problem. Robots will be put to the test in challenge tasks on the playing field in the Robot Game. In a second round, teams will present their research and complete a Core Values challenge and score points on their ability to collaborate and work quickly to resolve the issue.

Lunch will be provided by Shield’s Pizza, and Mitch Albom joins us as a special guest speaker before trophies are awarded.
