LigerBots to Host Eastern Mass. State FLL Championship at NNHS, Dec. 16

The LigerBots will host the Eastern Massachusetts FLL State Championship, a FIRST LEGO League robotics competition for 300 Massachusetts students in Grades 4-8 on Saturday, December 16, 9AM-3PM, at Newton North HS. It’s free and open to the public. The theme of this year’s competition is Hydro Dynamics (see video).  Forty-eight teams earned the right to compete in the championship via their performance in earlier qualifying events. They will use LEGO robots they have designed, built, and programmed to perform complex tasks. The public may also view the teams’ displays of their solutions to real-world problems related to the water-based theme. There will also be a maker fair with hands-on STEM activities for kids and a “RoboPalooza” exhibit of robots from First Robotics Competitions and FIRST Tech Challenges.
