Reminder: LigerBots to Host Introduction to FIRST Robotics for Grade K-8 Parents and Students, May 30

Students in Grades K-8 — and their parents — are invited to learn about FIRST Lego League (FLL) at FLL Info Night, hosted by the Newton LigerBots on May 30, 7-9PM in Newton North HS’s Film Lecture Hall (by the school’s front entrance on Tiger Drive). At the event, students and parents can learn more about FLL and what roles students can play on FLL teams — such as being a researcher, coder, or engineer — and they can meet others who are interested in forming FLL teams. FLL is for Grades 4-8, and FLL Jr. is for Grades K-3. For more information, email

The LigerBots — Newton’s FIRST Robotics team, spanning both high schools — offers this information session as a community service, in part because FLL is a great introduction to the engineering, teamwork, and project skills that make great future LigerBots. The LigerBots also support FLL by mentoring local FLL teams, hosting FLL competitions, and promoting the principles of FIRST.
