The Chronicles of Robotics at First Lego League – Day 1


This week am at St.Louis, volunteering at the First lego league World Robotics Competition. Have been involved with First Robotics since 2004. Usually my position is Robotic Design Judge – a front seat view to interesting & innovative ideas on Robots.

For 3 days we have the Edwards Jones Dome & the America Center in St.Louis, MO.

Day 1 : Stardate : 91913.81

Judges’ on-site meeting & briefing, allocations & FLL opening ceremonies.

Some quick pictures … Full day of judging starts tomorrow early morning  … looking forward to it ….
