Junior FIRST Lego League Expo - Saturday, April 14, 9 a.m. - noon.

We’ll host 6-8 teams (35 - 50 students) of primarily fourth graders for an Expo of their FLL work. Included in the day will be exhibits of our own FLL, FTC and FRC items set up for an "open house" type of feel. We'll have the FLL, FTC and FRC bots available for demo. While the judges deliberate, the IgKNIGHTers will demo the robots and talk with the kids about STEM, FLL, FTC and FRC. Awards will be presented in the Wegman Center atrium.
