Tetramatix is a First Lego League team who meet at the Natural Science Center in Greensboro, NC.
This year we focased on learning about Alternative Energy and how to better use our current sources.
An extensive energy audit was done of Gateway Education Center. The center has both older buildings and a new building. I was part of this team and we toured the buildings,asking questions about the type of energy used by the center, type of lighting, type of windows, carpet, paint, were computers and other electronics turned off durning closed hours and lots of other information.
Then we compiled a report and shared it both with the center and the public. To share our project with the public we made a display of our results and put them on deplaly at the Science Center.
In December of '07 we competed in the NC State Lego League
compotion and presented our finding to the judges. The team won first place in the state and will be competeing in the world compotion in Apirl of '08. If chosen for this grant I will use the money to support the team getting to Atlanta.
Thank you for your consideration.
