What is First Lego League? “Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field” (http://www.firstlegoleague.org/about-fll).
JMU is hosting First Lego League's Final State Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 2nd and Sunday, Dec. 3rd from 8am-5:30pm in Memorial Hall, ISAT, and Harrisonburg High School. They need 300 volunteers!
Volunteers receive a FREE T-SHIRT and LUNCH!
First LEGO league teams are posed with a real-world problem to solve and must create robots to compete against other teams. This organization heavily values science and technology and wants to foster excitement in these areas among kids ages 9-14.
