We invite you to attend the Dublin Robotics District Tournament January 10th at Dublin Jerome H.S. We will be hosting a 32 team competition from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm. There are over 100 FLL teams in Central Ohio and we hope you can find the time to attend this Saturday to learn more about the students and the robotics program.
FLL introduces students age 9-14 to programming, engineering, and creative problem solving. Themed competitions require teams to do a research project, presentation, and build and program a LEGO® MINDSTORM® NXT robot to perform a series of tasks. This year, Dublin Robotics Boosters is sponsoring 19 FIRST LEGO LEAGUE teams from 4 middle schools and 10 elementary schools with 180 students participating.
FLL WORLD CLASSSMChallenge
What is the future of learning?
FIRST LEGO League teams will find the answers. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class – FLL WORLD CLASS!
For the Project each team identified a topic that they are passionate about or always wanted to learn; created an innovative solution that improves the learning experience; and shared their solution with others. The board of the Dublin Robotics Boosters would like to invite any member of the Dublin Community to become involved with this program by volunteering at the FLL Dublin Robotics Tournament, encouraging you to coach a team next year or becoming a sponsor for the high school robotics team Bad Robot.

Remember, most students come to 2-4 meetings per week. You don’t have to be available all of those times. When you join one of more of the component design teams there will be a meeting schedule for those teams (based on when the members are available) and you can contact your team leader to know when they meet.
This program is open to all Dublin City School students 4th through 8th grade, and their parents. Without parent coaches we can not have teams. We have summer training to make you a confident coach.

We need Parent Coaches
What is the future of learning? FIRST® LEGO® League teams will find the answers. In the 2014 FLL WORLD CLASS℠ Challenge, from over 70 countries will redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class – FLL WORLD CLASS℠!
FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During FLL WORLD CLASS℠, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. They will also choose and solve a real-world question in the Project. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
Team Mindstorm Megabytes finished 12th out of 76 teams in the FLL North American Open Championship at Legoland, California.
We are looking for creative students that want to march in the Dublin 4th of July parade. The high school robot needs transportation down the parade route. Who will be the creative team leader? Any FLL team or student is welcome to wear your team t-shirt and march with us.
