FIRST LEGO League

FIRST LEGO League Teams are now forming! Teams are made up of 6–10 girls in grades 4–8 in fall 2014. Teams are led by at least two adult coaches (no experience needed), and supported by additional mentors and the series pathway at GSGWM.

Girls gain:

  • Diplomatic negotiation skills
  • Confidence in leadership roles
  • Gracious professionalism
  • Interest in engineering and computer science
  • Teamwork skills
  • Communication skills

A new challenge will be realeased on August 24th for the 2014-2015 FLL Year. Check back soon for details!

FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers.  During FLL WORLD CLASS, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS to solve a set of missions in Robot Games.  They will also choose and solve a real-world question in the Project.  Learn more by visiting the FIRST LEGO League Site below.

Teams are currently in different stages of formation across the following four locations. The cost is $75 per girl, and all of our teams still have openings for girls in the upcoming season. Sign up below or contact Melissa with questions. All of our teams are volunteer run. If you have a skill set that would be helpful to any of our teams please let us know! The Nashua group is also looking for a currently trained volunteer to support their team.
