New this season, FIRST LEGO League in Indiana created an award called the Indiana Team Outreach Service and Sharing (T.O.S.S.). The award is for the team who exemplifies the Core Value ideals of sharing their FIRST LEGO League experience and skills with others through volunteer service. The 2015 T.O.S.S. Award winner is team 1920, Terra Troopers, from Granger! They traveled 850 miles, and dedicated 981 services hours to showcasing the FIRST program!
The Indiana nomination for the 2016 FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Award was FIRST LEGO League Team 100, Team Storm, from Terre Haute Indiana! Last season the team received the 2015 FLL Global Innovation award for their work on a creative app that helps students with dyslexia learn new math skills. The App is called the ROY G. BIV Match system and it uses the colors of the rainbow to show place value for numbers.
This event and program in Indiana would not be possible without the support of extraordinary volunteers. Congratulations to Joe Fuehne and Joe Eininger for receiving volunteer awards for all of your hard work and to Chris Bellis for receiving the Outstanding Student award!
Congratulations to all participating teams and to all award winners for their excellence performance.
A big thanks to Wayne Doenges from FRC Team 1501 T.H.R.U.S.T. for all the wonderful pictures.
