TMSA Cyber Tigers Heading to FLL State Championship

TMSA robotics team, Cyber Tigers keep rocking in their first year.Triangle Math and Science Academy (TMSA) First Lego League (FLL) Cyber Tigers are heading to FLL State Championship at NC A&T on January 11, 2014. The Cyber Tigers have been working very hard since the beginning of September to build their teamwork, and robotics skills. The students of this club have been working extended hours after school learning to work with each other, learning ways to build, and program Lego EV3 bricks to perform this year’s challenge “Nature’s Fury”.



As a part of the “Nature’s Fury” challenge, the team members have come up with a cost effective way to solve global/local issue of flooding with their “Flood Shelter” project.   This shelter is an elevated flood shelter that can house large number of people for short duration. This project will help to save lives of people who are facing flood problem in case of flood like the ones we have seen such as the Philippines.

The FLL competition is consists of 4 different categories: Core Value, Robot Design, Project, and Robotic Performance.  Each team will have to show great team work in all these categories to win the highest award. The 6th and 7th grade members of the team have already won 1st place for Robotic Performance and 2nd place for Robot Design back in November.  It was announced at that time, 6th and 7th grade Cyber Tigers have won their place in next year’s State Championship.

Past Friday, December 20, 2013, Cyber Tigers was invited to their sponsor I-Cubed to present their hard work. The event was well attended by both the Cyber Tigers and the I-Cubed. The team members had chance to present their project and their robot design. I-Cubed was very generous in sharing presentation of their CAD program.

Please wish the Cyber Tigers good luck in their very first entry to State Competition!!!"
