Mentoring FLL Teams
The competition has been held annually for the past 19 years, and in each country that participates in this competition. It grew from a US/Canada affair into a truely international competition. The kids use Lego Mindstorm EV3 to make their robots and to make the competition fair, only official Lego elements are allowed in the robots.
2018-2019 will by our sixth season in FLL. We were able to qualify for the Long Island Championships on four of the five years that we competed. All of the original team members have graduated out of FLL, but in these six seasons, we were able to create and mentor 5 teams. This season (Into Orbit), we will mentor two teams and help them compete.
