The Sublette County Cowboy Joes 4H robotics team participated in the First Lego League Wyoming State Championships (FLL) in Casper, Wyoming in early December. This seasonís FLL Hydrodynamics Project Challenge was to improve the way people find, use, transport or dispose of water.

The Pinedale Cowboy Joeís team chose an innovative solution for transporting water by including drone technology as a search tool for finding and recording wash-outs in canals and ditches. They continued their quest to improve their technology skills by creating a Power Point Judges presentation and also creating some fun and entertaining green screen stop motion videos.

Their team robot, BatCycle, is a box robot incorporating many gears that allow a single motor to function for all of their Robot Mission Challenges.

The ten member team is composed of elementary and middle school students ranging in age from 9-13 years old. Team members are Brycen Vrska, Noah Daniels, Elizabeth Adkins, Liam Walker, Noah Adkins, Wyatt Griffin, Cayden Christensen, Emmaline Vrska, Alex Adkins , Eva Collins. They are coached by Sandra McLoughlin and Andy Adkins.

The team was thrilled to be selected as this seasonís Wyoming State Grand Champions. They are part of 108 teams, representing more than 34,000 teams who participated worldwide during this past season, invited to attend the FLL Hydrodynamics World Festival Championship in Houston, Texas in April 2018. This is the second year in a row the Cowboy Joes 4H robotics team has been selected to attend the FLL invitational world championships.

Thank you to Sandra McLaughlin for her contribution to this article. Photos by Andy Adkins.
