We Share What We've Learned

In the spirit of FLL Core Value #6, "We share what we've learned," our FLL team hosted an open house at the public library!

Team Greeters handed out origami Yoda's, a lollipop an Big Smiles!  

Robotics rock!

Sharing with interested attendees what the game table is about, what the missions are and how the robot runs the missions. We had one mission programmed and an excellent presenter (Way to go, Aidan!) - the kids and parents loved it!

Last years mission table set up. We also let kids who came try their hand at programming a mission!
See the slide on the screen behind the man in the striped shirt? The kids spent the last couple LL meetings working on posters and a power point presentation for the open house. The slide "We have fun!" shows a picture of our group on a field trip, doing research for this year's topic, "Elderly Solutions."

"We love YOU, Random Citizen!"
At the end of the 2 hour open house, everyone was ready to sit down!

During the open house, the library ran a "Creative Creations" Lego Contest, which our team judged, with winners in 3 categories! Best entry of the day, imho, was a gum-ball machine that exchanged a real dime for real gum. Of course, the designer was on a FLL team ; )!
(no pics of the entries- sorry!)

A fun time was had by all!
Way to go "Yoda!"

It sounds like a lot of fun. I highly believe in hands on learning.
