Adobe Bluffs Winter Read-A-Thon!

CONGRATULATIONS to the ABES students who advanced from their FLL Qualifying Tournaments in November and participated in the Legoland Southern CA FLL Championship Competition on December 6th! This tournament hosts the top 100 teams from the Southern California area and is very competitive.  The majority of the teams has several years of experience and are made up of middle school kids.  During competition, teams of students aged 9-14 are judged on their innovative solution to a real-world problem (The Project), their Robot Design and Mission Performance, and on how well they demonstrate Core Values (i.e., good character).

Adobe Bluffs' FIRST Lego League team, the Mech Warriors, received the highest scores possible in the categories of project research and project presentation and finished at 21st place in robot games. The team includes Noah Deich, Noah Lim, Casey Kammerer, Aiken Wang, Colin Mills, and Branden Ngo.

We would also like to congratulate Braden Christenson, Reid Naritomi, and ABES Alumni Colin and Mabel Szeto who competed with Team T3CH 4CE (pronounced "Tech Force").  They won the Mechanical Design Award and Trophy and placed 2nd among the 56 competing teams!

If you like research, robotics, strategic games, and fun competition, think about joining FLL next year!
