Do you want to play with some LEGO robots? Obviously, the answer is yes! Come join us to gain hands on experience with programming and designing using LEGO robotics. You will have a ton of fun while getting a clear picture of how these tools could revolutionize learning in your class. We will also share about one specific way LEGO robotics can be used at your school: starting a FIRST LEGO League Robotics program!

Computer science, creativity, collaboration, problem solving...these are all characteristics of a FIRST LEGO League program. Starting an FLL program isn’t as hard as it sounds and it is an incredible chance to provide your students with life changing opportunities. While we will mostly be focused on providing hands on experience, we will also share about the benefits of FLL and provide some helpful tools to get you started. FLL is primarily for elementary through early junior high students, though all educators are welcome. You do not need any prior experience with robotics, LEGOs, or computer programming. You don’t even need a computer. Come join us, and learn about this excellent program your students will love!
