FIRST Lego League (FLL) is for 4th and 5th graders interested in robotics, innovation, and teamwork.
FLL is a fast paced after school club that requires dedication and some Saturday meetings and the season ends with a district wide competition!
FIRST Lego League Challenge teams are scored on:
- Teamwork (called core values)
- Research project and solution
- Robot coding
- Robot game
Meetings will be held on Thursdays after school from 3:25-4:30. The season is short so attendance is very important. The first club meeting will be Thursday, Aug 26th 2021. There will also be weekend commitments on four Saturdays.
Saturday dates will be:
- Build day: Sept 25, 2021 from 8:30-11:30 at SA Wilson building
- Build day: Oct 9, 2021 from 8:30-11:30 at SA Wilson building
- Scrimmage: Oct 21, 2021 from 7:00 am-Noon (location TBD)
- Competition day: November 13, 2021 from 7:00am-6:00pm (location TBD)
Space is limited so If your child is interested in joining the WESA 2021 FLL Challenge team, they need to write a paragraph explaining why you want to join the team and explain how you will be a good teammate. Turn it into the front office, Mrs. Whatley, or Mrs. Gallagher by Tuesday, Aug 24th.
