Highest Score?

I was wondering what the highest score you guys have seen in Nano Quest is. I've heard 355 on the West Coast, seen 345 by the same team, and they wer just shy of 390 on two occasions in two different rounds using NXT.

So, what have you seen, and what system (RCX or NXT)?

Re: Highest Score?

At the Ontario Provincial Championships we saw a high score of 385 points by Team 2020, The BaNanos from Calvin Park Public school. There was also score of 371 points by Team 1812, The Tecumseh Technobots. Team 1812 also won the Champions Award and will be representing Ontario in Atlanta.

Over all we consistently saw scores breaking the 300 point plateau. This tournament was by far the highest FLL scoring tournament that I've ever had the privilege of attending.

Re: Highest Score?

Today at the NJ State Championship we had a team achieve a perfect score in 3 of the 4 rounds they participated in. 2 rounds counted towards their ranking, and the third match was when they acted as a fill in.

Re: Highest Score?

At the Novi, Michigan, Championship, we had two teams that posted 400. The fun part came in deciding who won. As a tie breaker you use the next highest score. For the next high score they both posted a 398. For the third highest they both posted a 360. On the fourth score one team had a 290 and the other a 300. By the way, one of those teams received the Champion's Award and will be in Atlanta.

Hey George, would you know which team that scored the perfect score?

And who won the Director's Award for NJ?

Thanks.

Re: Highest Score?

I heard that a team at the NH states got up to like... 400 points on one program. I'm not sure if the score is correct, but the fact that they did it in one program is true.

I didn't see the match or anything, but that's what I was told.

Edit: Today in the Newspaper, there was an article about the team "The Flying Geeks" who performed a perfect score 3 times all one one program. They'd press the button once, and watch it go to work.

Re: Highest Score?

The highest at the Northern Virginia event a few weeks ago was 351, but it was during a practice round, by the Tiki team (just went blank of their number). The highest that counted I believe was 341.

I don't remember their team number, but the team name is "Built on the Rock", they also won the directors award and will be in Atlanta.

Unless you count adding their attachment for triggering the opposite side of the space elevator, the Flying Geeks can indeed get a perfect score in one program! Their robot actually picks up its own attachment from the base! Mindstorms Mayhem has a couple of videos on their website here congratulating the Flying Geeks on their win. Unfortunately the Geeks won't be in Atlanta though. They would have done well there...

Anyway, the Inventioneers won the NH state Champions Award. Congrats to them!

Re: Highest Score?

Those kids from the Flying Geeks need an FRC team. Seriously. That is one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen. I'd be seriously interested in seeing how they managed to track so well, as well as using light sensor moving as well as good ol' cartesian coordinates (Bump into one wall and move out so many rotations, you've got your x, turn 90 degrees and back into that wall, move forward so many rotations and you know y.)

Those kids deserve FRC and Vex. Wow. It took us all season to be able to do everything reliably in 5 programs. They did it in 1. Nice to see they used Mindstorms as well, it's my kit of choice (until I get enough monies to buy a Vex one)

That is jaw dropping. I'm sitting here stunned. By far the coolest FLL robot/program I have ever seen.

Re: Highest Score?

I'm proud of the Flying Geeks...

One of their coaches used to be one of our mentors

It seems like New England is the 'Midwest' of FLL.
