The LigerBots are hosting a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) qualifying tournament at Newton North High School on Saturday, November 21st, from 9am to 3pm. FLL teams have spent the past two months designing and building robots, researching their projects, and practicing their FIRST core values, and are ready to show off their achievements. Come and watch the robot games, see the project presentations in our own “FLL Idol” event, and explore our mini-Maker’s Faire. This event is free and open to the public, and suitable for kids kindergarten age and older!
FLL is part of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and is open to students in grades 4-8. FIRST is an international nonprofit youth organization created specifically “to transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders”. Student participation in the FLL enhances independence and personal growth, while also highlighting skills needed for teamwork and leadership.
