How is the team organized and run?
We will be hosting 1 team (maximum of 10 students).
In preparation for the FLL Competition, team members research a real-world problem (2019/20 season is called City Shaper where children will explore city life through architecture) and develop a solution that includes designing, building, and programming a robot.
During the season, the team meets once a week for 1.5 hours on Mondays, 5:30-7:00pm.
In these weekly sessions, team members work in small groups to complete (on their own) all aspects of the FLL Competition.
In preparing for the competition, team members develop their presentation skills, as well as their knowledge of robotics and STEM, as they must present their solution (with a dash of creativity) to judges. They also practice FLL core values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.
Team members take great pride in their work. While we coach and guide the teams, all of the work you see displayed in competitions and expositions is done ONLY by the members of the team.
