First Lego League (FLL) is an annual competition that gathers students and teachers around the world to compete in a challenge that revolves around a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. There are two parts to the competition - a research project and a robotics competition. The goal of the research project is to raise awareness and to have students suggest a solution to the problem. The robotics competition challenges students to design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® on a table-top playing field.
The Kidzwhiz FLL team has some of our best robotics students participating. Our goal is to improve every year and to win the global competition. It will be tough but Kidzwhiz have a great team of coaches, mentors, and most importantly, smart students.
Registration for the team begins in January of each year, with the first session beginning in February. The regional qualifier is typically in December. We want plenty of time for our team to learn, practice, and work together.
The team meets once a week on Saturdays from 7pm to 9pm. Even though this is a long term commitment, past students and parents have told us that this whole experience was worth every second! Space is limited.
