1st Lego League (FLL)
The VBHE Board is currently looking for a VBHE parent interested in volunteering as coordinator for the homeschool chapter of First Lego League. Please direct any inquiries to Faith Riddering. email@example.com
FIRST LEGO League introduces young people, ages 9 to 14 (grades 4-8), to the fun and excitement of science and technology. Teams, composed of up to ten children with at least one adult coach work together to program an autonomous robot (using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot set) and score points on a thematic playing surface. They create innovative solutions to a problem, all while being guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements - the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values - make up what we call our yearly Challenge. Teams also fundraise, create a team identity, and talk to experts in the field. - See more at: http://www.firstlegoleague.org/mission/support#sthash.dzbMMlJL.dpuf
