FLL Robotics At MYC Concludes Fun And Successful Season
The First Legos League Robotics Club recently completed its 2014-15 season and held the certification ceremony on Saturday January 24th. Kids from various age groups participated in several and varied projects and competitions throughout the fall and early winter by building robotic Legos to complete tasks, to learn scientific methods of questioning and experimentation, and to practice teamwork. I addition to having fun, the participants competed in regional tournaments, performed a lot of research and engineering, and got to make new friends. We look forward to having more fun in upcoming seasons in the summer and fall. We also are looking for more parents to participate in various ways to help support the program. Keep a close watch on the website and email for registration information soon!
