Killian’s Robotic Rockets Rocking Rookies
The team was called the Robotic Rockets Rocking Rookies and was the inaugural team for Killian STEAM Leaders Magnet. We had 9 official team members: Paul Streater*, George Key*, Brelen Bethea*, Aaliyah Bennett*, Lynley Wheeler*, Kaela Branham*, Asa Price*, Zahcario McNeil*, and Aniyah Ware (*8 of which attended the competition). Trevione Green was part of the support crew during the year. This year's competition team was Trash Trek which focused on recycling and reducing trash.(Link:http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge) The team competed in its first ever regional competition at Doby's Mill Elementary in Lugoff, SC and earned a distinguished honor from the judges-The Robot Design Award which was given for innovative programming and structural design of the robot. Judges noted that all team members displayed exception knowledge and teamwork in this area. In receiving this award, KSLM's 4th and 5th graders bested middle school aged students who were veterans at the FIRST LEGO League competition. Other areas of the competition included Core Value, Research Project, and Robot Games. This year's coaches were Renee' Geddings, Robotics & Engineering Teacher, and Mark Jenkins, K5 Teacher. Our team mentor was Joseph Geddings, an Industrial Hydraulics Specialist.
