FLL Robotics

We are doing things a little differently this season for First Lego League than we have done over the past several years.

This season we will be offering to loan an EV3 robot kit and other Lego parts to all self forming FLL teams. These teams will need to have two adult coaches/mentors as well as 5 to 10 kids. These teams will be responsible for acquiring practice space; often done in school, churches, or homes.

Please see the attached form for borrowing a robot. Completed application forms are due by August 26.

As always, we will have team mentors available to help guide team coaches through the process.

On Saturday, November 22, the GRCS FIRST LEGO LEAGUE (FLL) teams participated in the regional tournament at Grandville High School.  In this daylong event, the four teams from GRCS presented their research projects, teamwork activities, and robots to FLL judges.  In addition to the judged events, each team took part in a robot competition, putting the robots they had designed, built, and programmed through a variety of tasks and challenges.


There were a total of 47 teams competing in the tournament.  The GRCS teams took first and second place for Robot Innovation and Strategy, second place for Project Presentation, and second place overall.
