First LEGO League (FLL) Parent Information Meeting
Who: Parents with students who will be in 4th-8th grade during the 2017-18 school year. Students are welcome to attend with parents.
Registration is not required to attend this event.
In FLL, children are immersed in real-world science and technology challenges. Teams design their own solution to a current scientific question or problem and build autonomous LEGO robots that perform a series of missions. Through their participation, children develop valuable life skills and discover exciting career possibilities while learning that they can make a positive contribution to society. This is not just playing with LEGO’s—it involves research, problem solving, technology, robotics, and engineering. FLL is parent led on a volunteer basis.
* If you are not able to make this meeting, but would like to be put on our FLL interest list, please send an email with your name, child’s name, email address, phone number, child’s school (17-18), and child’s grade (17-18), to: email@example.com.
There will be a FREE coaches training held on date and location TBD for 17-18 season. Stay tuned for more info coming in March.
