Yesterday, twenty Neutrinos and mentors gathered to assemble FIRST Lego League mission models that will be used in Iowa Regionals and the State Championship. In total, We made about eight kits. We are excited to volunteer on December 13 at the FLL regional at the Science Center of Iowa.
On Saturday, our team will build five to ten Mission Model kits for the First Lego League competitions at Iowa State. Through this activity, our team will help out the FLL program that inspires the next generation of scientists and engineers.
Our second day of the competitions went surprisingly well. We began the day by fixing our robot and performed well in some of our matches. We won two of our matches, but ended out being ranked lowly. During alliance selection, we were surprised to be picked as the second robot on the Eighth Seed alliance. Thanks to the Baxter Bomb Squad, the Cel-Techs, and Cougar Robotics for providing an excellent alliance to play with until the semifinals!
This is the teleoperated part of one of our elimination rounds:
Today has certainly been an exciting day! Due to technical difficulties, we left the competition ranked 37 with one win and three losses. Tomorrow, we hope to do better after repairing some problems with amperage and shooter tension.
Be sure to cheer us on tomorrow. Even if we don’t win, we have certainly learned much that will help us next year!

Team Neutrino is excited to compete in the off-season competition, Cow Town ThrowDown. Cow Town takes place from October 31 to November 1. At this competition, we plan to give rookie members an experience of what a competition is like in order to be more prepared for the in-season regionals.
We will be keeping our twitter page updated with our match results!
