Rockford Rovers Wins FLL Rookie Team Award

Rockford Rovers won the Rookie Team Award at the 2017 FIRST Rockford Illinois Qualifying Tournament on Saturday, December 2.

During our inaugural season we built and programmed a Lego Mindstorm robot which could perform three “missions” and could consistently score 50 points during competition table runs.

In addition to building a robot, the year’s game challenge, HYDRODYNAMICS, asked to students to explore a  problem related to the human water cycle. Our project focused on improving the activated sludge process in a wastewater treatment plant.
