This session will start with an overview of the FIRST series of competitions and their goal to promote recognition in Science and Technology. We will then cover the experiences of a first year team in the Lego League level, including student voice. There will be a hands-on opportunity to try the Lego Mindstorms EV3 coding program out on sample robot(s) using some of the challenge pieces provided in this year’s competition. If time allows, participants may have the opportunity to modify the robot build.
