Robotics Roundup

The information meeting for the spring season of Jr. FIRST LEGO League
will be held January 30, 2015
Location and time TBA - watch this space for more info!

This season's JR. FLL Theme:

There’s always something new to learn, as Junior FIRST® LEGO® League teams will find out this season. In the 2015 Jr.FLL THINK TANK(SM) Challenge, over 26,000 children ages 6 to 9 from 14 countries will take a closer look at where and how learning happens every day. Get ready to dive into the Jr.FLL THINK TANK!

Each year, Jr.FLL® presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the inherent creativity in young children. While exploring the real-world theme, teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized part. They will also learn to present information through a Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under Jr.FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
