B2B Lab: Leftover FLL Models...

As the FLL (FIRST LEGO League) robotics season nears its end, the question might arise as to what to do with the that season’s Robot Performance Field Set-up Models?

Well, here is some possibilities:

  1. Keep the models and mat, so that you might revisit those exciting moments of the tournament by running a mock tournament.
  2. Keep certain models that seem to reappear in a similar form each year, (loops) so that you may practice during the off-season.
  3. Keep them and invent your own scenario of an obstacle course.
  4. Find another use for them, such as delivering candy or something - cargo plane zip line from Nature's Fury.

5. Or disassemble them and add them to your growing collection of LEGO(R) parts.

Just a few suggestions…
