First Lego League
Posted 04/20/2018 04:28PM

CAISL participated on the First LEGO League National Championship that took place in the Instituto Superior Tecnico (Tagus Park) on March 24th 2018. This year, the main theme was Hydrodinamics.

During the first part of the competition, we had to present our research project. It was about "Desalination of Water at your House", which went really well. Everyone spoke during the presentation, and after some questions at the end, the jury said we did a great job! Then we have to show our Core Values. We sat down for an interview while showing our poster. In the end, the score was great. The final test was of the robot's capabilities, which wasn't bad. However, we misplaced the robot a few times, but it got the job done.

After the tests, we had some time to prepare and improve the robot and then we had lunch. After we had pizza and drinks, the robot competition began and we were able to succeed in different missions in the three rounds that we completed. Once everything was finished, we got a deserved first place in Core Values: Inspiration! It was a great experience and we can't wait till next year to participate again!
