"Robolution" is a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) student science and robotics team from Carlsbad, California. They are currently participating in the FLL experience where they are learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and being involved in the community, both locally and globally, as ambassadors of STEM. The team would like to welcome you and the community to be part of their FLL journey.
As part of this year’s FLL "Senior Solutions" Challenge, Robolution has identified dehydration as a significant challenge facing the elderly. Because the sense of thirst is diminished or lost as seniors age, many are unable to remain adequately hydrated, which can lead to serious medical consequences. Through extensive research, the team came up with a solution to the problem of dehydration in the elderly: the patent-pending HydroBand. This device is a user-friendly, non-invasive, continuous hydration monitor wristband that reminds seniors to drink water, which is designed to help preserve seniors' independence and help reduce their risk of dehydration.
To bring the HydroBand one step closer to improving the lives of seniors, Robolution is applying for the FLL Global Innovation Award in which the first round of judging involves online voting. This Award is designed to encourage and assist FLL teams to further develop their innovative solutions to real-world problems.
To learn more and vote for ROBOLUTION and the HydroBand, please visit http://fllinnovation.firstlegoleague.org/hydroband and vote by entering the CAPTCHA code and clicking the VOTE button. You can vote multiple times per day, every day of the voting period until noon (EST), Friday, March 1st. No automated voting, please. The Global Innovation Award committee considers the number of online votes an idea receives as one portion of the competition, and the top 10 teams with the most online votes will advance to the next level of judging. Please, feel free to pass this announcement and spread the word along to others. Thank you for supporting our students from Carlsbad and helping to foster STEM and innovation.
