FIRST Lego League

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League Challenge is a local, state, national and international robotics and innovative project competition. Students work on three STEM skills: robotics, innovative solutions, and teamwork. Students will build a robot and program it to autonomously complete prescribed tasks within two and a half minutes. Team members are asked to identify a problem in a given field and create a solution to this problem. Finally, students are evaluated on how well they work together as a team. FLL Challenge is open to middle schoolers at St. Annes. Practices are held Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7 - 8 am through November. If the team qualifies for the state competition, then practices will continue up until winter break. Other practices may be held on Friday afternoons as needed. This activity is limited to 8 students this year, so sign up early! There is no cost to participate in this club.
