FIRST LEGO League Junior (FLL Jr.) teams (students ages 6 – 10 or grades K – 4) coaches, mentors and parents are cordially invited to the FREE, first ever Quad Cities FLL Jr. season Kickoff! Teams will benefit from interactive table topics, learn how to plan a season, see what comes in the 700+ piece Inspire Set, get a glimpse of WeDo 2.0 programming in action and more. The Aqua Adventure season is all about water and how we use it. Come to the Putnam where you will have opportunity to interact with water professionals and learn about the FIRST progression of programs for students in grades K-12 with FIRST LEGO League Junior, FIRST LEGO League (grades 4-8), FIRST Tech Challenge (grades 7-12) and FIRST Robotics Competition (grades 9-12).
The event will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 10:10 AM to 12:05 PM and is free of charge through the gracious hosting by the Putnam Museum & Science Center.
Please note that the 5th Annual FIRST LEGO League (students age 9-14) Kickoff will be held in parallel starting earlier in the day.
To help insure we have adequate space and materials, all FIRST LEGO League Junior teams (students, coaches, mentors and parents) attending the kickoff must pre-register and provide signed consent forms when checking in as outlined below.
