–>New Coach Call Added – FLL Global Innovation Award

FLL has added a NEW coach call to the schedule for this season . On November, 12th at 7 pm ET, learn the FLL Global Innovation Award and how it ties into the FLL season. How can your team prepare for it?

 –>Robot Game Updates & Project FAQs – IMPORTANT

It is EXTREMELY important that teams check the Robot Game Updates page and the Project FAQ page frequently. Your team may have questions as they dive into the Challenge and the postings here contain official information that will be in effect at tournaments. Many teams assign a team member to check these pages before each meeting. It’s a great way to delegate responsibility!

 –>What are Over 80,000 Kids doing this Fall (US/CAN)? 

As of today, over 10,200 FLL teams in the US/CAN are registered for the SENIOR SOLUTIONS(SM) season. Assuming an average of 8 children per team, that’s over 80,000 children!

–>Forums

Have a programming question? Question about the Project or Robot Game?   Connect on the FLL forums:http://firstlegoleague.org/challenge/forums

Remember, this is not where official information is dispensed about the FLL program, but it’s a great way to connect with other inquiring minds.
