Dolphin Wars in LEGO/STEAM Lab

Third and fourth grade classes are competing in Dolphin Wars in LEGO/STEAM Lab.   In groups of three, students modify a base dolphin robot by adding offensive and defensive attachments.  Picture shows 4th grade students competing in Dolphin Wars.

The dolphins are programmed by each group to go back and forth on a table for as long as possible, and then dolphins compete against each other two at a time to see which one can remain on the table the longest.   

In each class, a round-robin tournament determines which dolphin is the class champion, and then each class' champion will compete against other classes' champions to determine a grade level champion.
