Kansas City JrFLL 2009-2010 Starting Up

4 Nov, 2009  |  Written by  |  under LEGO

Hey, just checking in with my fellow JrFLL coaches! Our team is starting practice next week, and we have a second 3rd grade team starting at Valley Park Elementary. We’re using WeDo components this year, and planning to move up to NXT and FLL next year.

Who’s coaching again this year?

Any new teams around?

I’m hoping we can get another JrFLL event/competition to happen in the spring.

I see on this page http://www.kcfirst.org/FLL-Ages_9-14.html that there are a few FLL Rumbles and meets:

  • December 5, 2009 FLL Rumble
    Summit Lakes Middle School
    1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • January ?, 2010 FLL Rumble
    TBD
  • February 27, 2010 FLL Tournament – Kansas and Western Missouri
    Summit Lakes Middle School
    8:00 am to 4:30 pm
  • March 5&6, 2010 FLL Exhibition at FRC
    Hale Arena
    9:00 am to Noon
  • March 20, 2010 Team Share
    TBD

I’ll try to get my team to a couple of these, and make sure they know about the events in case they want to attend on their own.

I haven’t seen it yet, but the show “Gearing Up” looks pretty cool:
