Holidays



Yessssss! for christmas my dad gave me another NXT! I have just finished a (flawless) BlueTooth NXT-NXT remote controlled car and I will post it soon. Please leave suggestions in the comments section if you want me to build something that has to do with two NXTs. I also got the LEGO MINDSTORMS Idea Book authored by some of the The NXT Step's contributors, and it is a great book. I would recommend it if you like NXTs and reading. And they encourage you to respond to them if you have a question.

FLL Competition at Intel

The A.E.R.O. Cows competed at Intel Jones Farm Dec. 15 and we got these scores:

1st round - 190

2nd round - 275

3rd round - 225

The second round tied for 3rd best table score with another team out of about 20 teams.
We scored high in the other topics too, and overall they were enough to get us to State! Woohoo!
