If you’ve been to one FIRST® LEGO League (FLL®) Fun Day, such as the games planned for this Saturday, May 13, you likely won’t miss another until your student graduates; that’s how strong the robotics program is in PWCS.
More than 1,000 fourth- and fifth-graders in 111 teams from Prince William, Manassas, and Manassas Park schools will spend the day at Osbourn Park High School playing a FIRST® LEGO League (FLL®) game, putting their robots to the test. The opening ceremony is scheduled for 9:00 a. m.
FLL is one of six robotics programs currently in Prince William County Public Schools. The FLL Fun Day is supported by middle and high school students who act as referees and judges for these younger robotics students. Robotics activities are designed to help children acquire problem-solving skills and learn and practice concepts of science, technology, engineering, and math, and much more.
