FIRST LEGO League at Riverdale Heights

Riverdale Heights' FIRST LEGO League Teams
6th grade students who have completed BOTH Basic Robotics AND Advanced Robotics may apply to join the Riverdale Heights FIRST LEGO League team.  Participation in both courses does not guarantee a spot on the team.

Students will build, test, and program an autonomous robot to solve a set of missions as well as research, develop, and share their innovative solutions to real-world problems.

The FLL season runs from August through the beginning of December.  The season culminates with a regional competition held at the Putnam Museum.

Thank you to John Deere for continuing to sponsor our FIRST LEGO League teams.
