Model Scouts visit Texas BEST Robotics competition

Matthew, Anthony and Dr. Michaud attended the Texas BEST Regional Robotics competition in Garland today.    This year’s theme was BUGS!  They had fun touring the teams’ booths and watching the competition.   They seemed happy!  They  learned about this competition and watched teams of 20 to 25 middle to high school students busily working on their project.  Our team is brand new and younger (10 years to 14 years) but we find it challenging to keep organized with only 5 members!


Unofficial FLL Scrimmage at Coppell Engineering EXPO

We went to a scrimmage today to practice being at an FLL tournament.  The scrimmage was part of Coppell High School’s Engineering Expo.  So the afternoon was part scrimmage and part field trip.    Robbie worked quite well on their FLL tables.  We earned 121 points in the robot game.  There were a few waves in the mat.  We wonder if the regional qualifier tables will be similar.  A big thank you to Coppell Robotics’ FLL Team “The Mad Cows” for putting on the scrimmage event!

Also, did you know that Coppell High School has an engineering booster club?  Parents and the community really support the education of their future engineers in that city. Awesome!
