This is an amazing project . Where are the championships held?  Are they open to public?  How old are your Robo Rattlers?
That is some serious coding effort to celebrate as Vermont celebrates Hour of Code/ Computer Science Week.

Hi all,

The Rutland Robo-Rattlers are a FIRST Lego League Robotics team, competing at the state championships this Sunday, 12/10.  The kids work from September to December to design, build and program an autonomous robot using Lego EV3 bricks, and also to solve a real-world problem related to the challenge theme.  This year, the theme is Hydro-Dynamics, and teams had to solve a problem related to the human water cycle.  

The Robo-Rattlers decided to tackle the problem of water conservation, and designed a system of water meters and buttons that track household water use over time and display it as a series of graphs.  The H2Show system also helps people to set goals for reducing water use and people can even earn badges for reaching their goals.  It's like a Fitbit for your faucet!

The kids have designed a survey and would love to have lots of data to share at the state comp on Sunday.  Please set aside just a few moments to take their survey.

Thanks in advance, and hope to see some of you with your own teams at Norwich on Sunday!
