Whenever your team wants to combine or bind a Mission Model with something else, be sure to check the test in bullet two of R11, Mission Model Handling:

  • If you combine a Mission Model with something (including the Robot), the combination must be loose enough that if asked to do so, you could pick the Mission Model up and nothing else would come with it. 

Each of the individual food pieces is a separate Mission Model, so the team is not allowed to "tightly" bind them together.


In my experience, most of the time that teams first consider connecting a Mission Model to something else, it isn't allowable.  Then, if the team thinks about the rule, they can figure out something that is allowable.

For the food delivery mission, we’d like to stack two like colors of food together and then bind them with a simple LEGO peg that we’ve made to prepare them for delivery. The robot then goes out to the field to deliver the bound pairs to the targets. This is not manipulating the fridge mission model itself but rather the loose pieces that are in play. This is okay, yes?
