Learn how to build and program LEGO robots!
Dates: Saturdays, March 9 and Saturday, April 6, 2013
Location: Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center
(March 9); University of Massachusetts Amherst (April 6)
Ages: 8 to 13 (must turn 9 by Sept. 2013)
Were looking for adult chaperones to bring teams of 5 girls to be
part of the Western Massachusetts Girls Connect events. 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 2013 season. No experience is required. In fact, girls
who attended in the past are not eligibleits an introduction.
The day-long events will take place at the MGHPCC in Holyoke (March
9) and UMass Amherst (April 6). Teams may attend either date, but not
both. In order to receive registration materials, one adult member
(teacher, parent, Girl Scout troop leader, afterschool program staff)
of your team must join one of the following brief informational
conference calls on
Wednesday, February 13th at 7:30pm
Thursday, February 14th at 3:00pm
Wednesday, February 27th at 7:30pm (April 6th event only)
Thursday, February 28th at 3:00pm (April 6th event only)
Join the call by dialing 1-218-339-2699 Access Code 354432. Note,
this is not a toll-free number; long-distance charges apply.
Unless you have attended a Girls Connect event in the past, all teams
must be represented on one 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.
If you have attended a Girls Connect event in the past, email Karen
Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive the application forms and
application website link.
