Kennedy RoboEagles helps organize Bloomington teams for FIRST Lego League (FLL).
The FLL season starts at the beginning of the school year and runs through the end of the year.
In 2015, FIRST Lego League signup was open to 4th and 5th graders until Saturday, September 12.
FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. Each team will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO Mindstorms technology to solve a set of missions in this year’s game, and create a project that develops innovative ideas to improve current conditions and add value to society.
Teams, led by parent coaches, meet 7-10 times in September and October, and take their robot and project to a competition in November.
The cost to participate is $45/student, and a limited number of scholarships are available. Kennedy and Jefferson robotics teams are organizing the program in Bloomington.
Teams operate under FLL’s signature set of core values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism. Last year, about 26,000 teams participated worldwide, with 621 in Minnesota.
The signup form has detailed instructions on how to register your student.
