This year is all about Senior Solutions!
Team registration is open from May to September
In the 2012 Senior Solutions Challenge, over 200,000 children ages 9-14 (9-16 outside US, Canada and Mexico) from more than 60 countries will explore aging and how it may affect a person’s lifestyle.
Teams research obstacles and then suggest ways to improve the quality of life for the seniors affected. Teams also build, test and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS to solve missions on an obstacle course. Throughout, teams operate under FLL’s signature “Core Values.”
I had the opportunity last year to participate as a judge and referee at both the regional state tournaments. The experience was great and left me itching for the time when my own kids would eb old enough to participate. FLL teaches kids and early teens teamwork, technology, good sportsmanship and how to have fun and solve problems. truely a great program.
