Hello! We're the Cybots!

Cybots love science! When we are not meeting with our Destination Imagination team, we are learning about the prehistoric earth, tornadoes and volcanos, the solar system, the sun and the planets, and the supermassive black hole in the center of the universe! We are also very interested in cryptography, robotics, circuitry, geology, and videography! Even though the three of us are still in elementary school (we're 8, 10, and 11), we've worked on hovercrafts, go-karts, Arduinos, Arduino Lilypads, robots, EV3s, and custom drones with our DI team. We even won an engineering award! We love to invent and experiment (especially with things that ooze, bubble, and explode), and one day we will use our inventions to rule the world happily together.


We loved making our own animation for this challenge and recording voice overs. Who knew how fun that could be??


Here's a little more about our team :)

Hi, I'm Lily. I'm an energetic person, and I love to eat!! I love science because I can explode things. I've got a crazy idea for an invention that could help you get out of bed in the morning: you press a button while you're in bed, and it flips you out of bed and into another room! On my next intrasolar trip, you can find me on Jupiter. I'll be packing my phone, my laptop, water, and some food.

Hey, I'm Rex. I'm a curious person and I love popcorn. Also, I love science. I've got an insane idea for an invention that gets rid of biohazards and solves biomedical problems, it's the BadBioEliminator...really. On my next intrasolar trip, you can find me on Neptune because it is my favorite planet. I plan to bring a transporter with me so I can bring over tons of chocolate cookies with crème filling--you know which ones!

Hi, I'm Ian. I'm a history and astronomy buff. I've got this interesting idea to build a time machine to travel back in time. I'd like to use it to save the Challenger. I'm very funny and I like to make people laugh. I love science--especially science about space. On my next extrasolar trip, I'm returning to the center of the Milky Way galaxy to the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A (while listening to my favorite song also named after the supermassive black hole.)

Hi, I'm Yvonne. I'm the team captain. My responsibilities are making sure the Cybots have enough snacks and making sure we have a good supply of robot parts available. I plan to buy a 3D printer that should help with both of those responsibilities. When I'm not preparing snacks for the Cybots, I'm a consultant who gets to work with fun, geeky tech all day.


We hope you like our video!! You can watch it with or without the subtitles :)
