All-Girl FLL Robotics Team Sponsoring an FLL, Jr Team!

Help me give my students three of the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Core Sets so they can provide the FIRST LEGO League, Jr opportunity to younger students.

My Students

Coaching three FIRST LEGO League Robotics teams from August until February for the past 8 years has provided me with students I'll have forever memories with. All of these teams approached their yearly challenges in their own unique way.

Wanting to encourage younger students to become involved with the FIRST LEGO League program, our all-girl robotics team started a FIRST LEGO League, Jr team.

This team is fielded with elementary students in grades 3-5, providing them the opportunity to become acquainted with FLL robotics.

My Project

Each WeDo2 Core Kit provides the materials for two students. With three of these kits and the one kit we currently have, we would be able to provide the FLL, Jr experience for eight students rather than just the two we are working with now. These third graders have been working through this year's FLL challenge for FLL, Jr, Mission Moon. They have not only built various robot applications dealing with moon related challenges but programmed them as well.

Being an all-girl FIRST LEGO League Robotics team is a really big deal and we're making a push to encourage more females to become interested in the FLL opportunity.

We're hoping that with the FLL, Jr program we've established, we'll have a large number of girls signing up to be part of our robotics team as they move into middle school.
