Welcome and More Info on First Lego League

We have a great team lined up.  Most of the kids know each other in a variety of ways and the 5th graders are/will have been veterans of Destination Imagination for several years now.  DI emphasizes a lot of the same core values (teamwork, innovation, etc) but more in framework of the Dramatic Arts.

Finally, all of our kids are good eggs and solid across the board.  This should give the team advantage in getting the most out of what FLL has to offer from individual learning to project teamwork.  I’m really looking forward to working with your kids and watching what they can achieve this year.

We’ll use this blog to for team communications and coordination.  Check here regularly throughout our FFL season to find out how our team is progressing and what are the current tasks are for everyone.
