First Lego League for 4th & 5th graders
KES did not have a First Lego League this fall. We hope to have one in the fall of 2013. If you are interested in being a parent leader please contact Mrs. Switzer.
Below is some information about First Lego League (FLL):
Probably the best way to explain what we do at a competition is to see it in a video. Here are some youtube videos that will give you an idea of what the completion looks like.
(If you want to see more there are tons of videos out there if you just search for FLL 2010 Body Forward.)
What is FIRST®LEGO® League -
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 and middle-school 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
What FLL teams accomplish is nothing short of amazing. It’s fun. It’s exciting. And the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
