On Saturday, November 10th, eleven FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams from Valentine and Carver Elementary Schools will compete in the first FLL qualifying tournament.
FLL introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL promotes interest in STEM, encourages problem solving, and facilitates team building.
The supplies for FLL were purchased through a grant from San Marino Schools Foundation; these supplies support not only the teams, but also ongoing curriculum and classes.
K.L. Carver School will host this qualifying tournament on Saturday. Registration begins at 7 am and the opening ceremony starts at 8:30. Visit Carver’s website for more information about the event.
Good luck to all the teams.
