This is a UMass program.
Contact information is below.
Learn how to build and program LEGO robots!
When: Saturday, April 28, 2012 at UMass Amherst
Who: Ages: 8 to 13 (must turn 9 by Sept. 2012)
Were looking for adult chaperones to bring teams of 5 girls to be part of
the Girls Connect event at UMass Amherst. Extremely popular last year, 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 2012 season.
The day-long event will take place at UMass Amherst this spring (April 28).
In order to receive registration materials, one adult member (teacher,
parent, Girl Scout troop leader, afterschool program staff) of your team
must join a brief informational conference call on
Thursday, March 1 at 3:30PM.
Join the call by dialing 1-218-339-2699, access code 354432. This is not a
toll-free number; long distance charges apply.
Teams must be represented on the call in order to receive registration
materials! 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.
