If your child is interested, it would be helpful if you complete this form (https://goo.gl/wiu2ZK *this form is specific to Fall interest in FLL*) before Monday so we can gauge interest and start to form teams.
**Note: We will also offer a separate 4th/5th grade winter/spring Robofest league (see https://robofest.net/inde
x.php/current-competitions). We will send out another email in late fall when we are organizing Gallimore teams for this league.**
Fall Robotics League Summary
Our fall robotics league will be FIRST Lego League (FLL). In an FLL competition, teams are scored on a robot game, research project, and teamwork/FLL Core Values. To get an idea of what to expect this year, see the season video https://www.youtube.com/

The FLL season runs September through the December Championship Competition. Teams will typically have two 90-minute meetings per week: one at the school for robot work, and one at a location determined by the team for research. We plan to host a Monday evening league and a Thursday evening league. The cost is around $50 per student. Two registered coaches are required per team of 6 to 10 students.
We look forward to involving as many students as we can in robotics this fall!
