Part of the FLL competition involves ‘Core Values,’ which includes competing with a positive and infectiously fun attitude. The Pickles’ socks were a hit across LEGOLAND. All over the park and into judging sessions, Mr. Pickle, their newly acquired mascot, accompanied the team. Courtesy photo
The Atomic Flying Pickles, a FIRST Lego League (FLL) team of Los Alamos Girl Scouts, won the Project Research Award May 18 at the LEGOLAND North American Open FLL Tournament in Oceanside, Calif.
Their project and research on a water additive that may help put out campfires better and with less water impressed the judging panel.
Their trophy is made of LEGOs.
Also competing from Los Alamos were the Bloonatics, who had a strong showing in their Core Values judging, as well. From left, Ellie Rightley, Ally Lakis, Emme Segler, Genevieve Triplett, Jessica Erkkila, Zoe Lederman and Elia Vasquez. Courtesy photo
