You can always build something with Legos approximating a ruler.
 
For your second question, In your example, you will receive a five point penalty.

Only if it’s a LEGO ruler.

 

True story: at one tournament a few years ago, a parent had made a beautiful wood aiming jig – sanded, stained, finished. Broke my heart to have to tell him he couldn’t use it.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Ruler allowed in base?

 

Hi,

This may be a dumb question but I have looked at the rules and searched the list for this question and I don't see it. Can a ruler be used to position a robot while it is still in base? Paint, tape and glue I see not allowed.

Another one, when a robot is active and then becomes inactive on the field after a certain mission is there a penalty every time you touch it when bring it back to base or are you allowed to touch it to bring it back after each mission? i.e.

1. Robot is activated, completes a mission, comes to stop instead of coming back to the base on it's own. You then pick it up to bring it back for the next mission. Is that a 5 point penalty or is the robot considered inactive? I was thinking you needed to have it come back on it's own and if you assisted then it was a penalty.

While I did attend a training camp last year this is my first year as a coach. To top it off this is the school's first year participating so we have had a big learning curve to overcome. However even after all the hours I have put into helping the kids learn and get acquainted with FLL I think this is one of the most engaging, hands on curriculum I have ever seen. Seeing the joy in their eyes after a successful mission is more than worth it. (yet they are learning and don't realize it :)

Thank you Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center for helping me get this started in our school.
