LOWELL, MA -- Two teams from Saint Michael School entered the Aqua Adventure Expo held December 2 at the Merrimack Valley Robotics FIRST Lego League Expo and and also received awards. The Adventure challenged the students to "Explore," Create and Test" then "Share" their discoveries. The students used Lego WeDo 2.0 robotics kits to build, code and share.
The Girls' team was recognized with the "Little Einstein" award for their creation of an Iguana Habitat that stored and purified the water for the habitat. The girls also featured a safety mechanism - if the iguana escaped, the safety mechanism would shut down the system using a sensor until the iguana was returned. Once returned the system would automatically resume.
The Boys' Team was recognized as "Master Programmers" for their creation that stored rain water and would roll on a track to water crops in the land. Their machine was programmed to roll the exact amount forward, stop and go backward in a loop that continuously demonstrated how it would water the crops.
This was Saint Michael School's first appearance in the Expo.
