Laurel Ridge Eagles Lego Robotics Team
2018-19Into Orbit Challenge
Our team of ten 4th and 5th grade Eagles worked together to assist NASA in solving long distance space travel problems. As the world looks toward our future space missions to Mars, the astronauts will encounter problems. Our team addressed the issue of SOCIAL ISOLATION. They developed a inflatable vest that includes scented patches. The research conducted by the students showed that hugs and familiar pleasant scents are comforting to people feeling socially isolated. Our team won the Champion First Place Award at Dekalb Regional competition this year and the Project award at the Super Regional Competition in January. What an amazing accomplishment!
