Twindly Bridge's first annual Micromouse+ challenge was held May 17th, 2014 at 10:00. Five students and one teacher participated. Of those, Ben Bashor's robot was the only one able to navigate an unknown maze, becoming our first student to join the exclusive group of maze solving roboticists. For his efforts, he has been awarded the much coveted maze solving skill badge.

Taylor and Sadie Olson's robots were able to consistently navigate unknown labyrinths. Joshua Shoemaker finished programming an app to remotely control his robot at the event, and Aaron Miller demonstrated basic functionality by programming his robot to drive in a triangle. STEM educator Wade Roach of Diamond High School demonstrated an EV3 controlled Lego robot.

Next year I plan to hold the event earlier and hope to have a larger turnout.
