Interested in the FIRST LEGO Robotic League this fall?
If you are the parent of a rising 4th or 5th grader, and if your child is interested in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) program, please plan to attend a parent meeting on Monday, May 5th at 5:30 in the Claxton gym.
For the 2014 fall season, the theme is all about the future of learning -- Learning Unleashed! From the challenge preview: “Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn.” Teams will research current solutions and propose innovations of their own. Each team also designs, builds and programs a robot to compete in a game based on the same theme. Through all of this, teams must embrace the core values of teamwork, community service, "coopertition" and fun. Teams will compete in a regional tournament in November.
There are a limited number of spaces per team, and students must apply to participate. Applications are due Friday May 16th and can be downloaded here or a hard copy can be picked up from Ms. Stewart in the front office.
At the parent meeting, learn more about the program, what students can expect and the commitment required to participate. We also need parents to make this happen! If you may be interested in helping to coach or mentor a team, please come!
