First FLL Meeting!

On Saturday and Sunday, we had our first FLL meetings of the year! We had a great turnout on both Saturday and Sunday, and we are all looking towards a great new start of the FLL competition season!

We started to brainstorm for our Project. (Team 1 and 2, if you want to comment and give some feedback, that would be great!) Here are some of our ideas:

-An app for teamwork that gives two scenarios that involve teamwork. This is targeted towards younger kids.
-An app for spelling and academics that helps kids work on their schoolwork. This features a virtual study group so many kids can work together at once.
-Bio-technology for recognizing and remembering names. (Still working on details)

We also got working on our Mission, and we started to brainstorm on trips and strategies.

We had a productive meeting on Sunday, and I hope to see everyone again at the STEM Meeting!

First Meeting

Our first meeting

Our first STEM meeting, which was like an orientation.

Yay! We had our first actual STEM meeting on May 29!

First, Ashton and Eddie gave a warm welcome to all the people who attended. We explained all about FLL, how it works, and how we’d split people up into different roles. The roles are the project group, the missions group, the A/V group, the core values group, and the website and documenting group. In addition, the students watched videos about FLL. They looked at our blogs (one of them is the one you’re reading) and asked questions. Finally, we talked about how we would fundraise for next year. Then came the final announcements. These included the STEM homework and our next meeting (June 12). Our meeting really was a success and I hope that no one will drop out.
