The local FIRST Committee is in need of volunteers for their FLL Qualifiers (November-December).  FLL stands for FIRST LEGO League, and is part of the FIRST Robotics program that engages students (grades K-12th ) in a variety of Robotics related challenges.  All of the participants at the FLL level are in grades 4th-8th, and have been working very hard for several months to successfully program their EV3 Robots.  The students must program their robots to complete missions, and all of these missions have to do with the theme: Hydrodynamics.  Below are some helpful links to provide you with more information and the pathway to volunteer.
