Join the South Florida Science Center as they participate in their 5th season of FIRST LEGO League Competitions!
Monday Nights starting September 17th from 6-8pm through December or January depending on the tournament schedule.
What is FIRST LEGO League?
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams (up to 10 members, ages 9-14) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, and then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.
What is this season’s challenge?
Prepare for blast off, break out of your earthly constraints and go INTO ORBITSM.
The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League season will transport your team into space, where you’ll explore, challenge, and innovate in the vast expanse of space.
Who can participate?
The really cool thing about FIRST LEGO League is…all skill levels are welcomed and needed, technical or non-technical. Teams need all kinds of skills and creativity to succeed, so what are you good at? Chances are we have a job for you. And we’ll probably teach you a few new ones while you’re with us.
Youth team members are encouraged to bring any skills or interests they already have, but most importantly a desire to learn and solve problems as a team. FIRST LEGO League welcomes every student, with or without special skills.
Our FLL team meets on Monday nights from 6:00pm - 8:00pm starting on September 17th, 2018. Qualifying tournaments generally take place on weekends during Dec/Jan with regional and state championships typically being held in Feb/March.
