FLL Season Overview: The signup for an invitation to our Open House in December for the 2023 FLL is available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list.
In the winter and spring we meet once a week for two hours. We begin in January by becoming comfortable with building and programming a Lego Spike Prime robot. This experience will be crucial when the competition robots are built in the Fall. When the season teasers are released in April, we start our background research into the worldwide problem being represented. We brainstorm ideas for innovative solutions to mitigate the problem based on experiments we conduct. Teams meet with experts and go on a related field trip during the season. We hold at least one Fundraiser Event to show off our Spring skills. We take July off. Beginning in August we meet twice a week, two hours each meeting. There is a Mock Competition in October with outside judges to help us gauge our readiness.
In a typical season our Qualifier competition is in November and our State Competition is in December.
