2013 FLL Season Kickoff

The season is upon us for FIRST Lego League!

We will meet for the first time this year on Saturday, September 7th. We will begin a 1pm with kids meeting with Erik in the Fair office building until 4pm and at 1:15 with parents meeting with Marlene in the Education Center for about a half hour. Please come prepared to complete 4-H membership paperwork (it will ask for insurance information). The fee is $5 per member.

The kids will start some research and finish building the elements of this year’s game.

Lots of information will be distributed and questions answered. New and returning parent(s)/guardian(s) please make every effort to attend this 30-45 minute session. If I have to repeat it several times, I may forget whom I told what. 🙂 I will also ask, if you have a question that can be asked at the meeting, please write it down and bring it with you.

The build season will start the following week with sessions on Monday and Wednesday 6:30 – 8:00 at the fair office. I include this information just in case it is absolutely not possible for someone to attend on the 7th.

If you would like to take an early look at what the theme and challenge are for this year, please go to the following link:

This is the “younger half” of the Orleans County 4-H robotics club. To join you must be at least 8 years old by 1/1/14. (Anyone entering 9th grade this September will move up to our FRC team) FLL team make up will be explained at the meeting.

We look forward to seeing everyone and having another championship season!!!
