The Institute of Urban Education (IUE) Hosts FIRST LEGO LEAGUE (FLL) OHIO KICKOFF
Saturday, September 10, 2011 the IUE hosted the FFL season "Kick Off".
The FIRST LEGO League is a robotics program for 9 to 14 year olds, which is designed to get children excited about science and technology -- and teach them valuable employment and life skills. FLL can be used in a classroom setting but, is not solely designed for this purpose. Teams, composed of up to ten children with at least one adult coach, can also be associated with a pre-existing club or organization, homeschooled, or just be a group of friends who wish to do something awesome
Those attending the “Kick Off” were able to meet and speak with Ohio Lead Referee, Richard Storrick about the robot game missions, scoring and rules.
A beginning robot programming workshop was presented by the Dayton, Ohio ambassador team, The “Brick Heads” . Each session accommodated up to 12 people per session. Also, team members were able to get advice on how to build a winning research project.
A Core Values workshop was presented by Global/ Ohio Judge Skip Gridley.
This event was free and opened to the public.
Approximately 350 people from across the greater Miami Valley area attended this event.
