FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an innovative robotics program that encourages kids between the ages of 9 and 14 to think like scientists and engineers to solve real-world problems. Each year, FLL teams across the world work to complete an original project presentation and design/program an autonomous robot to complete challenges at regional, state, and national competitions. Through FLL, kids learn about teamwork, competition, and the science and practical applications of computer and robotics programming.
4-H Narwhals of Creation, a 4-H Robotics Club, was established by Genesis Garden in 2015. Through a partnership between Genesis Garden and the University of Illinois Extension, the club encourages youth between the ages of 9-14 as of January 1, 2017, or Grades 4th through 8th grade to participate in First Lego League (FLL) competition.
McDonough County’s first FLL team, The Narwhals of Creation competed in a qualifying tournament in Springfield, IL. For more information about the team, if you are interested in being a coach/mentor/volunteer, or if your know someone who wants to join our team, contact us.
