The Newton LigerBots are hosting a First Lego League (FLL) and Jr. FLL Info Night for elementary and middle school aged students and parents. FLL is the FIRST LEGO robotics competition for fourth through eighth graders. Junior FLL is a project-based FIRST program for children in grades K – 3.
In addition to building and programming LEGO robots, each year’s themed FLL challenge a project for which team members brainstorm and present creative solutions to real life problems. This year, all the FIRST competitions will be space themed and the FLL game is titled “Into Orbit”. The presentation is aimed primarily at parents, but kids are also welcome to come and learn more about the FLL program and participate in STEM related activities. Eastern MA Champion FLL team The Day Dragons will join current LigerBots students and coaches who have participated in FLL in the past will lead a presentation with general information on FLL as well as on how to start your own team. There will be demonstrations of EV3 robots, STEM activities, and people to answer any questions you may have. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
