REGISTRATION OPENS - MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 2018
The 2017-2018 First Lego League season is almost upon us. Over the years, Kennebunk has made a name for itself in this wonderful, friendly competition that supports young people ages 9-14 in teamwork, building, researching, problem solving and programming.
This year’s theme is Into Orbit, which you can find more detailed information on at https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll/challenge-and-season-info.
WHERE: Sea Road School COST: $140/participant
When participating in this program, students can expect to gain experience building multi-functional robots while using EV3 Mindstorms programming. That being said, there is much more to this program than Lego Robotics. Kids will be expected to work collaboratively within a team of 6, with two adult overseers. In addition to solving complex missions with their robots, students will work as a team to identify a problem related to space exploration, research, brainstorm possible ideas, choose a strong solution, and present a final project together through a variety of possible methods.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Practices will be held at Sea Road School and will vary in time depending on the team in which they are placed. Registration will open Monday, August 20th and will close on Friday, September 14th. The season will run through mid November for all teams and into December for those who pass the state qualifier. Teams may and have proceeded beyond the state meet, but the Parks & Recreation Department’s season ends with the state meet. When you sign up, please include a note of days that would not work for your child and we will try to accommodate. If you have any questions please contact Matt Jackins at email@example.com.
We look forward to another great season!
A student maximum will be set as soon as we know our number of coaches. If you are interested in coaching, or simply want information on coaching requirements, please contact Matt Jackins.
