About the Team

Although it is the first year for us in Moonbots, then our team has already taken part in FLL for two seasons, and it has always gone well. The first season we got to go to the international Canada Open competitions and the closed invitational competition in Brazil, the second season we got the second master place and our project was one of the best.

Our team has 5 people: Johan Valdemar Leoste, Karl Aleksander Leoste, Aurora Mikk and Karl Kaspar Leedo as team members and Jaanus Leoste as the coach. The original FLL team had more people, but not everyone could join the Moonbots team. We are 11-15 years old and we all like robotics.
Kaspar likes playing football and swimming, Aurora is a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, Johan does origami and plays video games and Karl plays guitar and makes music.

Testimonial from someone who has viewed our tale:

Great video! It is very well thought out and I loved the use of Legos as a visual demonstration. It is obvious that you have put a lot of time and effort into your project and have considered a number of contingencies. You have really thought of everything - from safe living arrangements to the technical aspects of living and working on the moon. I especially liked the explanation of how to synthesize rocket fuel. Good luck in the competition!


I thought the Narrations were very well done. It takes a lot of effort and energy to learn a foreign language and as I believe most of the students have English as there second or third language in this video. I was very impressed with how clear and specific everyone was. The video also used both drawings, computer animation, and Lego buildings to demonstrate concepts. Additionally the information presented and the new concepts proposed were very well thought out and I believe helps to motivate and inspire those who are interested in pursuing real world projects that might help mankind explore space! Nice a work!

Awesome video and great concepts! Using the moon as stopping point for interplanetary travel as well as a home base is an excellent idea. Living underground while on the moon has many added benefits compared to being on the surface. Great ideas for sustaining life while on the moon. Growing up with Legos myself, I loved the use of Legos in your video. The thought of using the ice on the moon for water as well as rocket fuel is ingenious! It is inspiring to see young minds put forth this kind of effort.
Good luck in the competition!
