Students age 11 to 14 are invited to join ACPL's first ever FIRST Lego League (FLL) team.  What is FLL?  It's a educational program and competition involving Mindstorms robotics in which students are challenged to think about and research a complex topic and come up with ideas for solutions.  This year's challenge, announced just today in the above video, is Trash Trek.

Our team will be coached by engineers Dr. Martin Stern and Dr. Tim Loos.  the team will meet each Tuesday beginning September 8th from 4:00-6:00PM in Main Library Young Adults' Services to learn about robotics, do research, and prepare for the competition.  Interested students: please call 421-1255 to sign up.  Space is limited.
