Few clarifications needed regarding the rules for Robot game and Core value
1. Robot game: Are the kids allowed to have "launch pad" made from Legos at
base from where the robot would start the mission. This was built so that
the Robot
starts in exactly the same position.

How do other teams deal with the "starting position" issue?

2. Robot game: The kids are finding it hard to understand the programming
required for making the Robot go straight or make turns using Gyro or
Propotional line.
Is it okay for a coach to provide them with Starigh line and turn MyBlocks
to program their missions.

3. Core value activity: Are the kids allowed to carry a smartphone to clock
the time
or do they need to bring a watch.

4: Core value activity: Is it okay for the kids to split into 2 groups to
solve a problem and try different approaches, selecting what works in the
end or do they need to always be working together. I have 4th and 6th
graders and it's a challenge to get them to work together.
