Introduction to First Lego League Certificate

Eric completed his 4 day course on Introduction to FIRST Lego League. It was a well run program. There were 24 kids aged 9-13, two adult instructors and 6 teenage ‘mentors’ (black shirts front row) who were experienced with Lego robotics.

They used the standard LEGO league mission board which was about as large as a standard pool table and tried to accomplish 3 of the mission elements.

Sample missions are shown in the checklist.

For the final presentation each team member played a role: explaining the robot, describing a FLL Core Value, or describing their robot’s mission. FLL Core Values include

  • We are Team
  • We do the work to find solutions with guidance from our coaches and mentors.
  • We honor the spirit of friendly competition.
  • What we discover is more important than what we win.
  • We share our experiences with others.
  • We display Gracious Professionalism in everything we do.
  • We have fun.

Eric’s team managed to get their robot to perform 5 tasks.
