I know that a large percentage of the FIRST community is involved with FLL but if you are not - don't miss it again!!
This is a tremendous program and it will bring tremendous results! The best way to grow FIRST is to increase the demand to such a level that it can't be stopped. Thousands of young kids are now going to be looking for something else after LEGO. I'm not sure what is going to happen in Mountain Home in a few years - a town of 10,000 and we had 14 LEGO teams this year.
There were ten tournaments across the country this past weekend with six more coming up Saturday. If you are close to one of the remaining events I would strongly encourage you to attend and see what incredible machines these kids can build from a box of LEGOs!
go to www.legomindstorms.com/fll
and follow the '2000 Challenge' link to find the locations.
