FLL Presentation to Students for College Week

Matthew and Anthony ran the team’s solution to the 2012 First Lego League (FLL) robot game puzzle for students at Skaggs Elementary as part of its College Week celebration.  They explained how they figured out the puzzles and answered student questions about FLL.  They told them how being on a FLL team helps them try out careers in mechanical engineering, computer programming, the sciences and even management.   They also can practice skills that are helpful for a variety of careers such as giving presentations, making posters, conducting research, brainstorming solutions and practicing teamwork.

Note: We had to crop the photos so that students were not recognizable.
