Learn how to build and program LEGO robots!
Date: Saturday, March 29, 2014
Location: University of Massachusetts Amherst
Ages: 8 to 13 (must turn 9 by Sept. 2014)
Were looking for adult chaperones to bring teams of 4-6 girls to be
part of the Western Massachusetts Girls Connect events. Extremely
popular in recent years, this cool all-girl introduction to FIRST
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 2014 season. No experience is required. In fact, girls
attended in the past are not eligibleits an introduction.
Our day-long event at UMass Amherst takes place on March 29. 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 26th at 8:00pm
Thursday, February 27th at 3:30pm
Join the call by dialing 1-267-507-0400 Access Code 354432. Note,
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! You will then have until March 10 to register your team.
Because of the popularity of this program, partial applications
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.
