October 24 Meeting

For this meeting, the team talked about the greenhouse affects in a desert and looked at a map for the Great Basin, our target area.
They also looked at a book that explains what succulents are and then looked at the leaves of the plant Hens and Chickens (also known as cats and kittens).
After coming back inside, they completed a project from last meeting. The JrRR's were very excited to learn that they would be using the motor in the kit!! They completed one project with the motor (shown in the video).


Here LegoScientist and RoboRose are working together to finish the project from last week.


Technobot, LegoArtist and Naomi are taking turns putting together pieces for a motorized model.
This is their first motorized project

October 3 Meeting

Today the team started by reading some books. This is the book they took turns reading: Deserts by Cathryn Sill, and these are the books they looked at: Desert by April Pulley Sayre, Deserts by Keith Lye and Biomes of the World: Deserts by Michael Allaby. If you can imagine these books were pretty HOT!!!

After reading, the team brought out the building kit and started building. They finished a piece from last week and made a new one. There was allot of compromising when the required pieces weren't available.
These are the projects that were finished today!!
Here Technobot is showing off one of the moving projects completed.
