First Lego League (5th – 8th Grade)
The First Lego League is back in force, and this year’s theme is “Into Orbit!” If you are a budding engineer, computer programmer, science fair presenter, or just a great team member, FLL needs you. We have as many as 10 slots on the team. It’s a serious commitment, weekly meetings (TBD) to prepare for the three judged segments of our competition in January: 1) Building and programming an autonomous robot as a team; 2) A Science-fair type presentation (solving a physical or social problem faced by humans during long-duration space exploration); and 3) Our teamwork itself. It’s a great experience- a lot of work, and a lot of fun!! Jump over to stvlegoleague.wixsite.com/legoz to find out about FLL, and you can let us know if you are interested – so we can get started right away!
