• FLL 2015-2016
    FIRST LEGO League is a robotics program designed to get children excited about science and technology – and teach them valuable employment and life skills.  In FLL, the team will design and program an autonomous robot (using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot set) to score points on a thematic playing surface, create an innovative solution to a problem as part of their project, and follow the FLL Core Values. These three elements - the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values - make up the yearly Challenge.  The French Creek team will attend a regional qualifier tournament in December or January, with the potential of advancing to the state championship in February.

    French Creek will have one rookie team this year.  Interested 5th - 6th grade students must have their parents complete the Team Tryout Permission Form prior to tryouts.  See the file links on the Robotics webpage to access the form.

    Being on a First Lego League team is a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work.  Additionally, there are many, many students at French Creek who would love to be on a team, but space is limited.  For this reason, we ask that only students fully dedicated to the challenge participate on a team.  All team members are expected to attend all required practices for the full time.  Practices will be held on Tuesdays, from 3:05 - 4:45pm.  The competition date will be announced in early October, and will be sometime in late December!
