4-H First Lego League 4-H Clubs are forming for the 2014 Season!
Where: 4-H FIRST Lego League Clubs will be forming for the 2014 Fall Season in West Harrison, 3 teams in Woodbine, 1 Team in Missouri Valley, and 3 teams in Logan
Who can belong: youth 9-14 years old are eligible and all applicants will be considered for the 10 member teams that will be selected in each community.
What will they do?: They will learn teamwork and then work on programming a Lego MINDSTORM NXT Robot to complete specific tasks on an 4 foot by 8 foot challenge field. They will also identify a community project and plan a presentation that they will share with Community Leaders. These teams will participate as an Iowa First Lego League Team in a Western Iowa Regional Competition in December.
Teams will meet once or twice weekly to prepare their team project and presentation and learn to program their robot for completing the challenges that their robot must complete in the 2 1/2 minute rounds of competition .
Can FIRST LEGO League teams help us master natural disasters? In the 2013 NATURE’S FURY℠ Challenge, more than 200,000 children, ages 9 to 16 (9 to 14 in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico) from over 70 countries, will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves, and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play. Brace yourself for NATURE’S FURY
