On your mark, get set, flow! Drink in the 2017 HYDRO DYNAMICS season and learn all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it.
FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the HYDRO DYNAMICS season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FIRST LEGO League’s signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
The NW Saturday Academy FIRST LEGO League robotics team is welcoming new 3rd through 8th grade students for the 2017 season.
Sessions will be held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:30 am at Northminster Presbyterian Church beginning on August 26th.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, we will have our lowest ever tuition this semester: $150 for ten sessions plus State Tournament Preparation. Financial aid is available; please call or email for details.
We are also seeking one new Team Mentor for this season. A Mentor is any person who works with the team in his or her area of expertise, from government liaison to graphic arts to engineering. (HINT: If you have a connection with DC Water, please contact me ASAP!)
Mentors help expose team members to potential careers in addition to helping them learn the skills necessary to complete the FIRST LEGO League season. While STEM skills are valued, the most important quality for a Mentor is someone who enjoys working with young people and wants them to learn. A small stipend is available; please contact me to learn more.
