FLL Edmonton Wrap-up

I would like to begin by thanking the 500 students in over 50 teams, their teachers, parents and guardians along with over 300 hundred volunteers who attended and helped host our AMAZING First Lego League tournament, INTO ORBIT.  To see students from ages 9-14 tackle real-world problems and challenges such as space, and then work together to develop a solution made it such a wonderful event.  Of course, we can’t talk Lego robotics without mentioning the countless hours that teams put in designing, building, and programming complex robots that were able to complete a series of table-top challenges. 

As both a parent and teacher, I was left breathless when I saw the sheer passion that our young people applied toward what they have learned in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math, and as a result made it something unique to them, their understanding and their resiliency.  I was able to witness first hand, students working in challenges that they had never seen before and create a strategy that allowed them to achieve great success.  Additionally, those students were able to further their presentation skills when sharing their designing, building and coding strategies with our local volunteers who brought their own gifts and talents to share.  I would like to thank our volunteer guest judges, who brought their expertise from engineering, information technology, programming and coding, education, metrology, accounting, and so much more.  

Finally, a HUGE thank you to our organizational committee whose endless support and dedication was something out of this world. You are a great group of people and I am blessed to be on this committee with you.  Without everyone’s support this event would not have been possible.

Edmonton Director for FIRST LEGO League

Edmonton FLL and FLL Jr.
Tournament Information

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live on a spacecraft, the international space station, or the surface of the Moon or another planet? What if you were there for a year or more? Remember, outer space is a very unforgiving place: much of space is almost a complete vacuum, meaning there is no air, and none of the moons or other planets in our solar system have an atmosphere that is suitable for humans to breathe. 

In this season’s INTO ORBIT Robot Game, we’ll explore these questions and many more, and we’ll get to learn about the amazing engineering used to go – into orbit!!

This year’s Edmonton event will take place January 26, 2019.  Spaces are limited so sign up soon!
