FIRST® LEGO® LEAGUE (Ages 10 - 14)

The Greensboro Science Center is sponsoring several teams for the FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) season. FLL is an international competition that revolves around designing and programming LEGO Spike Prime 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.

GSC teams meet once a week beginning in late August for 3 hours. Students who participate on teams are expected to attend the weekly meetings and do any homework assignments. 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.
