Public Invited to FIRST LEGO League Eastern Mass. Championship and Maker Fair, Dec. 15

The Newton LigerBots high-school robotics team will once again host the Eastern Massachusetts Championship event of the annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) robotics competition. It will be held at Newton North HS on December 15, 9AM-3PM, and it’s free, open to the public, and a blast to see. Among the 45+ FLL teams competing will be Newton’s Roaming Rovers and Day Dragons, which won entry to the event through their success at the Newton Qualifier competition hosted by the LigerBots last month. Alongside the Eastern Massachusetts competition will be an expanded maker fair and robot zoo exhibition showcasing all kinds of STEM offerings and hands-on activities. The LigerBots will also host about 50 Newton Girl Scouts in Grades 1-5 to see and participate in the maker fair.
