First Lego League is an upcoming event that Prudence Learning Center will be partaking in on May 18, 2013. (Please check “upcoming events” for future FLL events )
FFL allows young people, ages 9-16 (grades 4-8) to have fun while learning about science and technology. This program helps students build confidence, gain knowledge, and learn valuable life skills by urging them to think like scientists and engineers. While working with mentors, First Lego League teams will solve problems by using helpful engineering concepts and robots. Allowing students to experience this event will help them learn how to engage in teamwork, and apply core values to everyday life. During this event, FLL teams will apply math and science concepts to design and build robots, use LEGO MINDSTORMS technologies, gain hands-on experience that will aid in their learning process, learn from mentors and work as one to meet challenges.
