Washington FIRST Robotics (WFR), the organizers of the USFIRST robotics competitions for students K-12th grade, will be holding a morning workshop for its JrFLL (K - 3rd grade) programs at Central Washington University.
JrFLL and FLL programs are both LEGO based programs exploring the students natural curiosity of science and engineering. Both programs are highly popular in our state, and this year WA FIRST Robotics is making a concerted effort with the assistance of CWU to grow the number of opportunities for students in the central corridor of our state.
This is a FREE workshop for those considering joining or starting a JrFLL team or have just started a team. JrFLL and FLL, in most cases, are programs run by parent volunteers as after school programs, 4H, Girl Scouts etc. JrFLL is also a perfect program to integrate within a K - 2nd grade classroom environment.
Please Note: This workshop is intended for adults - those already coaching or planning on coaching, or considering coaching/starting teams.
This will be an informal workshop, with a lot of opportunity to ask questions, learn how our programs work, and how you can get involved.
9:30 - 10:00 AM Check-in
10:15 AM - 11:00 AM JrFLL Program Overview
11:15 AM - 12:00 PM Q&A / Demos
There will also be opportunity to see teams preparing for the upcoming season until 3:00PM and a great visual of how students can graduate from Jr.FLL into FLL and expand their STEM skills.
Where will the meeting take place:
The meeting will take place on the CWU campus in Ellensburg in Hogue Hall. Parking is available on campus at Q14 and N19 (the latter fills up fast on weekends).
