LEGO League (FLL) is a result of an exciting alliance
FIRST and the
Guided by adult mentors and their own imaginations, FLL students solve
real-world engineering challenges, develop important life skills, and
learn to make positive contributions to society. This program is
for Leominster residents or Leominster students in grades 7-8.
A new challenge is given out every year by FIRST LEGO League International, consisting of several different tasks to be completed by each team's LEGO robot. Each team has two minutes and thirty seconds to make their robot do as many tasks as possible, with each task worth a predetermined number of points. An award is given to the top-scoring team, as well as to teams who excel in other categories.
The 2012 season's theme: Senior Solutions
Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of life for seniors by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities?
