Yesterday at the Teaching and Learning Academy, an informational meeting was held for those interested in forming teams (see photo). The turnout for the meeting was FANTASTIC (thanks for everyone who turned out)!
At the meeting, the 1st FLL contest in Memphis was announced. Although details are still being worked out, the date for the competition is tentatively set for Saturday Dec 3, 2011.
For those interested in forming a team, please contact Frank Niedzwiedz at FrankN@rnsystemsdesign.com. FLL is for youth aged 9-14 years of age. Any one can form a team (schools, civic groups, boy scouts, girl scouts, 4H, home school associations etc).

For FRC teams, this is a wonderful chance to:
– Help a FLL team by becoming mentors!
– Demonstrate your FRC Robot at the FLL competition to generate more awareness of FRC and US First!
– Volunteer to help at the FLL competition as a volunteer!
