What is the First Lego League (FLL)?
The FLL introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.
Elementary students get to:
Design, build, test and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
Apply real-world math and science concepts
Research challenges facing today’s scientists
Learn critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills
Participate in tournaments and celebrations
If your child is interested in participating in the FLL please note:
If you would like to sign up please fill out the form here.
We also need parent support! Indicate interest on the form if you can be a team assistant. It does require a commitment to run the practices and attend competition events. Meetings will begin this spring, with the first competition in the fall.
The practices can be held in the afternoons at Madison. The coaches will help the students learn Lego Mindstorms NX2 robotics fundamentals including mechanical design of robot – structure, ground movement and kinematic functions, autonomous control and how to achieve challenge objectives , and NXT programming language.
