Hello. We are Team #20687, the High Voltage Couch Bananas, and we compete in STEM competition through FIRST LEGO LEAGUE, or FLL. We are in our third competition season from Eagle, ID, and are the two time South Idaho FLL Champions, winning in both our 2016 rookie season, and again last year in 2017.
Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8**) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field.
Our 2017-18 Hydrodynamics Team consists of 6 members, 2 coaches, and 1 new mentor. We range from 5th to 8th grade, and attend 2 different schools. One thing we do have in common, however, is that we all play for the same soccer club outside of Robotics season!
Thank you for visiting our site, and we hope you find something below that encourages you, inspires you, or challenges you.
