Sparbots take 2nd place Champions Award in robotics competition

This skit was performed by the Athens Academy Middle School Sparbots for judges at the Ga. FLL, Gwinnett Regional tournament on Saturday, December 4th.

The Athens Academy Middle School Sparbots robotics team competed in a 22-team Regional FLL (FIRST Lego League) robotics tournament on Saturday, December 4th, at the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center. The Sparbots garnered the 2nd place Champions trophy for best overall robot, project, and research on the tournament theme of Biomedical Engineering.

Panels of tournament judges graded the Sparbots on three separate, but equally weighted categories: robot operation (design, construction, and programming of an autonomous Lego robot completing numerous tasks on a 4' x 8' obstacle course), biomedical engineering project (research, problem solving, and ability to share research), and overall teamwork (adhering to FLL motto of Professional Coutesy).

After visiting St. Mary's hospital in October to study the da Vinci surgical robotic system, Sparbots students learned that robotics allowed doctors to provide better, more precise surgical operations with enhanced patient healing because of smaller incisions, allowing for quicker recovery and healing. The students performed additional biomedical engineering research to propose an idea to create a molecular-sized robot called a nanobot. The students aspire to design a nanobot that could detect cancer cells in the brain and be able to destroy them individually with infrared or radiation in micro level, precise dosages. They wrote a skit to simulate blood (red, white, and corrupted cancer) cells being treated at the molecular level by their hero, the nanobot.

The Sparbots next competition is the FLL Super-Regional tournament at Creekland Middle School in Gwinnett County on January 8th.
