Just like the older kids that make up the more senior Garden City robotics teams, the members of Team Fun and Crazy Creators, GCRL’s two Jr. FLL teams, participated in the 5th Annual Jr. FLL Expo held at Longwood High School in Middle Island on Sunday March 3. The event is sponsored by The School Business Partnerships of Long Island. Longwood Central School District hosted the event and is one of the event sponsors. Team Fun won the Team Spirit Award and The Crazy Creators won the Teamwork Award.
The Crazy Creators, all third-graders, are Charlie Ambach, Julian Bubniak, Riley Sanz, Max Sclafani and Nicholas Stamidis and are coached by Ken Ambach and Constantine Stamidis.
The members of Team Fun are Harrison Cottrell (7), Maeve Dorney (9), Ella Mele (9), Matthew Tusiani-Eng (7), and Patrick Wren (9).
The team, coached by Parent Emily Arnone, developed a LEGO model representing a Satellite Driven GPS where seniors could get to the hospital via a fully automated ambulance. The ambulance would get them to the hospital quickly when necessary without requiring a driver, and also directly through traffic. When interviewing their senior partners the members of Team Fun identified that GPS was a recent innovation that has greatly improved their lives by enhancing the Seniors’ mobility. At the same time they began working on their project, Google announced that they were developing a fully automated vehicle, which Team Fun then incorporated into their project.
