The Greensboro Science Center is sponsoring several teams for the FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) 2018-2019 Into Orbit season. FLL is an international competition that revolves around designing and programming LEGO® Mindstorm robots to complete challenges on a themed mat. Students also learn team building skills and create innovative solutions for challenges facing today’s scientists. For more information about the international FLL program, visit www.firstinspires.org.
The Greensboro Science Center is devoted to helping young people discover and develop a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). The FLL program is designed to help students learn STEM under the FLL Core Values. The annual programs culminate in a robotics competition and celebration where teams win recognition, gain self-confidence, develop people skills, make new friends and perhaps discover an unforeseen career path.
GSC teams meet once a week beginning in late August for 3-4 hours. Students who participate on teams are expected to attend the weekly meetings and do any homework assignments. The GSC also hosts an evening team night and in-house scrimmage. Teams will also be competing in a regional FLL tournament and will have the possibility to advance to the state competition depending on their performance at the regional tournament.
