High Peaks Elementary ROCKS at 2008 Lego League
Photography Notes: Since the stage lights were off, it's not much of an
exaggeration to say this was like taking pictures in a dungeon.
ISO 1600 was used with occasional bump-ups to ISO 3200 rather
than just blast with flash -
group shot is at F/4 and 1/10 second - that's a dark stage!
Global Coolers & Peak Point Power both advance to State! (Mouse Over for formal picture)
Just before the big morning presentation, Global Coolers are ... COOL! ;-)
Global Coolers wrapping up their presentation
Judges asking some tough questions during Q&A
I think the judges liked 'em!
And they stayed "cool" even with the paparazzi there! ;-)
Global Coolers & Peak Point Power practicing during lunch for afternoon robot sessions
They look concerned ... or are they nervous about going on stage?!?
Some last minute assistance from the Chief Global Cooler
Heading to the stage - Mr. "K" is taking picture from the overhead rafters
Gathered around the table - again from ~200 feet away
Zooming in from the high vantage point
Global Coolers concentrate as their fans/coach look on (Mr. "K" is back on stage)
Some tense moments as the robots did their stuff
Very tense moments!
"Man, I hope this works" (it did!)
Team effort as Global Coolers worked together
Intense Concentration to successfully complete the mission!
Peak Point Power had some exciting moments too!
Gotta like it when the Robot does what it is supposed to do
Siblings of two High Peak's FLL players ham it up for the camera
Look at those trophies - both teams advance to State! (Mouse Over for cheering picture)
