 LEARN HOW TO BUILD AND PROGRAM LEGO ROBOTS!
 
 
 Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015

 Were looking for adult chaperones to bring teams of 5 girls to be part of
 the Western Massachusetts Girls Connect event.  Extremely popular in recent
 years, this cool all-girl introduction to FIRST LEGO League matches you up
 with coaches and professional computer scientists & engineers to learn how
 to build and program LEGO robots to do real-world tasks. 
 
 At the end of the day, well show off our robots in a friendly competition,
 and teams will receive awards for their hard work.  Well also tell you more
 about FIRST LEGO League and how you might join the fun for the 2015 season.
 No experience is required. In fact, girls who attended in the past are not
 eligibleits an introduction.
 
 Please note that in order to continue offering this program, we are now
 charging a $250 per team fee. If your team is selected to participate, you
 will be prompted to pay online by credit card. The fee must be paid in
 total.
 
 In order to receive application materials, one chaperone (teacher, parent,
 Girl Scout troop leader, afterschool program staff) of your team must email
 Karen Sullivan (ksullivan@usfirst.org).
 
 Applications will be accepted through an online system beginning Monday,
 February 2. The site will remain open through Wednesday, February 11, or
 until all application slots have been filled. Because of the popularity of
 this program, partial applications cannot be considered. The event is open
 to teams of girls from Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties.
 
 Questions: Contact Karen Sullivan, ksullivan@usfirst.org
