The RoboCats are the First Lego League Challenge robotics team at St, Patrick School. The 2020-2021 team consists of
four 6th graders (Katie Regan, Tate Ellingson,
Ashley Hennessy, and Elijah Weighner) and
two 5th graders (Jakob Schulte, and Raymond Sweeney).
Every year First Lego League releases a new challenge based on a real-world, scientific theme. This year’s challenge theme is called RePlay and focuses on playing and becoming more active. The RoboCats build a robot and program it to complete missions on a challenge mat full of tasks built out of Lego bricks.
The team is also encouraged to undertake a project to put the theme into practice within their community. This year the team is launching their RePlay project, Q-Up for Good Health!, at the Waukon Wellness Center. It is a QR code seek-n-find game that keeps people moving around the Wellness Center searching for 18 different QR codes that are linked to a website developed by the RoboCat team members. The website has 18 different health tips and information which encourages and educates participants to lead healthy lifestyles. We hope you go to the Wellness Center and Q-Up for Good Health!
