2015 Rookie FAST-STARTS - REGISTER HERE!

Need help getting started?  There are 6 opportunities to attend a Louisiana FIRST Lego League (FLL) “Fast-Start” Training this year, and we would love to have you join us!  It is a great opportunity for rookie teams to get up to speed, but veteran teams are also welcome.  The agenda will include a brief introduction to FLL, a review of the current game missions and judging rubrics, and an opportunity to build, program and test your robot with the help of FIRST Robotics high-school team members and FLL mentors.  Bring your robot, if built, or your robot kit, if you haven’t had a chance to build it yet.  The objective is to go home with a working robot with at least one program! 

 

Attendance is free, but you must register by the Tuesday prior to the Saturday event.  For example, the registration deadline for the August 29th Fast-Starts is Tuesday, August 25. If the registration number exceeds the capacity of a facility, registration for that event will be closed. And please note that there must be at least 1 adult attending for every 10 students.
