Our amazing team is made up of 4th through 7th graders from Helena, Montana. Our team designs and builds bots using the EV3 platform. Every year they are challenged to use STEM to solve a real-world problem. Students must research and develop a solution using their knowledge and creative imagination. They then must design, program and build a working robot to complete missions on a table with a playing field. Students apply science, technology, engineering and math concepts to solve a real-world problem.
Our project is to raise awareness for the need for affordable housing in Helena. We want to work with our local municipalities to develop a plan that would spearhead a cohesive plan and make a difference.
Through hard work, MicroFusion has been selected as one of only 48 teams to compete in the FIRST LEGO League LEGOLAND Open International competition. The International competition will be held May 15-17 in Carlsbad, California. The cost to get our team and equipment to the competition will be substantial. We are asking for the community's help in getting us to LEGOLAND and come home champions
