Matthew at 2012 Derby

Matthew’s pinewood derby car, Salute to the Pittsburgh Steelers, took 2nd Place in the Fastest Car category.   Brady’s car, Army Green monster, took 3rd in the Fastest category.

They did a great job considering the derby was a week after the FLL Regional Championship.


Model Scouts wins at FLL qualifier: 1st in Robot Design and 2nd in Robot Game

Model Scouts had a great day at one of the five North Texas First Lego League regional qualifier competitions at Parish Episcopal School of Dallas today.   This was the team’s first FLL competition.   Model Scouts earned the 1st Place trophy in Robot Design and the 2nd Place trophy in the Food Factor Robot Game.    There were 40 teams at the competition.   We had dinner with our parents at Sweet Tomatoes to celebrate.  Mrs. Michaud is buying us a video camera for our lab — thank you!  That will help us playback our test runs.
