First Lego League Presentation 4.7.2014

  1. 1. FIRST Lego League
  2. 2. FIRST Lego League: • Challenges students to solve real world problems using robotics. • Encourages students to work together and to think like scientists and engineers. • Builds self esteem and confidence. • Provides a fun, creative, hands on learning experience.
  3. 3. FLL Children: • Apply math and science concepts to design, build and program autonomous robots. • Research challenges facing scientists today. • Learn teamwork skills. • Present their findings to their community. • Discover the fun in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
  4. 4. How FLL works: • Teams of up to 10 children, grades 4-6 are formed in each of our schools. • FLL releases its “challenge” for the year. Past challenges include: Nature’s Fury, Food Factor, Body Forward, and Senior Solutions. • Students begin work building their robot and challenge mat, researching this year’s topics and getting to know their team mates. • By the end of the season, students will have built and programmed a robot using Lego Mindstorms technology, researched a problem facing today’s scientists and discovered an innovative solution for that problem.
  5. 5. FLL In Orange: • At least 1 team at each school. • Collaborate with 21st Century on STEM learning. • Run a month long summer camp (this year’s camp will focus on building a Green City as well as a Mission to Mars). • We have gone to the state competition almost every year that we have run the program.
  6. 6. Our Goals: • To partner with local engineers who are interested in becoming mentors to our FLL children. • To raise money in order to purchase a Nao Robot. • We would like to see the program grow during both the regular season and summer camp and perhaps add a spring session as well.
  7. 7. “I like that the whole experience taught them to analyze a problem and come up with a solution in a team environment. This is the real world and it really empowered them. It gave them a taste of what life is really like and showed them what they could accomplish if they just imagined, trusted their ideas and tried. Ryan was very timid when speaking in groups and the Lego League really brought him to life and helped him conquer his fears. He loved what he was doing so much he never thought twice about the competition or public speaking.” -Kristi P., FIRST Lego League parent. “I liked that we could add all of our special touches to what we were building. I am glad I get to work with other people as a team. I liked that we got to work as a team and got to take turns operating the robot and express ourselves the way we wanted. ” -Ryan C, 4th grade FIRST Lego League student
  8. 8. “During Lego League, I have learned that it is easier to work as a team than to try and do something alone.” -Aiden K, 6th grade FIRST Lego League student “I liked learning different ways our community helps one another and how my ideas can also help my community.” Sri Lehka K, 4th grade FIRST Lego League student “My favorite part of Lego League was programming the robots. It took a lot of work to make them run correctly.” -Cooper B, 6th grade FIRST Lego League student
