Yes, it's okay to use a launch pad that's built completely of LEGO, fits completely in Base, and isn't being touched during a launch.
Few clarifications needed regarding the rules for Robot game and Core value activity-1. Robot game: Are the kids allowed to have "launch pad" made from Legos at thebase from where the robot would start the mission. This was built so that the Robotstarts 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 timeor 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.Thanks,
