Why are we the Dueling Dragons?

Our Team is named the Dueling Dragons because of an old Quileute Indian legend.

According to the Quileute’s there once lived two dragons. One dragon lived in Sol Duc Valley, and the other dragon lived in nearby Elwha Valley. One day the two dragons met and proceeded to fight over land which is now Olympic National Park. S they fought, they made the earth shake, fires rage, wave’s crash and wind roar. The two dragons fought on and on but they were an equal match so neither could win. Finally they crawled back into their caves and wept bitter hot tears. The Tears are now the Sol Duc Hot Springs that visitors still enjoy today.

Our FLL team was born in the year of Nature’s Fury, 2012, and now, our legend too lives on…

What is FLL

FIRST FLL (FIRST LEGO League) is like a competitive sport. Kid’s age’s 8-14 build autonomous LEGO robots that perform a series of missions. There is also a Research Project, Core Values, and Engineering part to the competition. This year’s theme, “Trash Trek,” is about solving problems in trash.

According to FLL, kids learn to:

  • Create and innovative solutions to challenges facing today’s scientists.
  • Strategize, design, build, program, and test an autonomous robot using

          LEGO MINDSTORMS Technology!

  • Apply real-world math and science concepts
  • Develop career and life skills including critical thinking, time management, collaboration, and communication while becoming more self-confident
  • Become involved in their local and global community
  • Choose to participate in official tournaments and local events
  • Qualify for an invitation to World Festival
