All of these blog posts have been floating around in my head for the past few weeks... So this week we are turning to the Presentation/Skit for our Research project. We did not change anything here except revamping the presentation board and practicing the skit lines and such. All is well there.
There is another requirement that FIRST slipped in on us at the 11th hour (slight complaint here)... a board that addresses FLL Core Values (i.e. gracious professionalism, teamwork, discovery, initiative, etc.) and how our team has experienced them and learned more about them. So the kids need to scramble and make a board to show these things... they need to do some brainstorming and get really creative here! Fast!
The kids have been brainstorming their pit decorations; a theme, things to share with other teams, games, stress busters, etc. - lots of great ideas - should be a lot of fun to decorate and be part of the energy and excitement down in the FLL pits!!! Electrifying!!!!!!!
I've also been researching some things to see around St. Louis to give the kids a break from the intenseness of the Competition; visiting the Arch, St. Louis Zoo, etc.
We would like to take the week off before Easter to enjoy family and to observe the Passion week. So it seems like we are on track to do that... Then it will be off to St. Louis!
