Wish Charter To Host First® Lego® League World Class Qualifying Tournament
By: FIRST Lego League, WISH Charter,
During FLL WORLD CLASS℠, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. They will also choose and solve a real-world question in the Project. Teams will be judged on robot design, robot performance, project presentation, and Core Values. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FLL signature set of Core Values.
FLL Introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.
The robots are only one part of the FLL Championship. The teams will also compete for best robot design, best innovation project presentation and best overall teamwork awards. In addition, teams will be judged on their adherence to the FLL “Core Values,” which include “friendly competition”
“We are very proud to host the annual FIRST® LEGO® League World Class Qualifying Tournament,”
