Our team got to help prepare FLL teams for their upcoming tournament by assisting NOVA Labs with their annual mock tournament. It incorporated all the elements of a real FLL tournament, including robot missions, design, project, and core values. There were five teams present, with varying amounts of experience and members. The teams received score sheets for each area of competition at the end, which showed them where they did well and where to improve.
These events are important as they support younger kids involved with FIRST, and encourage them to stick with it into high school and beyond. Many of our current members and mentors started as members or coaches of FLL teams.
We will continue to support the FLL team Candy Legos through their competition on November 18th, as well as improve our website to provide more resources for younger teams.
