The development team is a 12-week program beginning in January for kids in grades 3 to 8. It will meet on Mondays from 5:30-7:00pm.
The primary focus is to teach kids how to work as a team to build and program robots for the actual FLL robot competition missions (there are a total of 18 programming challenges).
Over the course of the program, the children will be divided into separate small teams so that each child can participate fully in the training.
The last class will be competition day (with family and friends invited to watch) where the teams will be judged on the robot missions, just like in the official competition. The team with the highest score will be awarded a trophy.
