The Bowmar Builders are an FLL team associated with Bowmar Elementary School. The purpose of this blog is to help other students interested in robotics to learn from what we have learned. As an FLL Robotics team we use the Lego EV3 robotics system and the Mindstorms graphical programming language.

Example Citations and References

Capturing references and appropriately citing them is very helpful in documenting that you actually studied a range of sources. Below is an example of this.


I recently read a really cool book on robots. The author, Katherine Clay, did a great job a showing several jobs where robots can do dangerous jobs for people (Clay, 2014).

I watched a cool video about robotic dogs washing dishes (CNN, 2016.) I bet my mom would love a robotic dog that could wash the dishes! I think elderly people and disabled people would really benefit from a robotic dog for washing the dishes.

At school today I asked around to find a teacher who has a pet in his/her classroom. Mrs. Walsh has a pet fish. I asked her about the benefits and challenges of having a pet in the classroom. (Byrd, 2016)
