NY Finger Lakes FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Qualifying Events 2015

The much-anticipated, NY Finger Lakes FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Qualifying Events are about to take place! Admission to the sanctioned robotics competitions is free and open to the public. These competitive events, for students in Grades 4 through 8, make for a great family outing, and we encourage everyone to come out and cheer on the many local teams. There are several different dates and locations to choose from (posted below). All teams will be presenting their research projects throughout the morning hours. The specific robot competitions typically begin by 12:00 noon with the awards ceremony scheduled for the late afternoon hours.

We recommend spectators arrive between 12 and 1:00 pm (no earlier). Prior to coming out, you can view the Robot Challenge Video (posted below) to learn about the specific building and program missions the FLL Teams are enthusiastically solving for. In addition, be sure to take a tour of all the Team Pit Areas to see the robots they have designed and programmed as well as, to learn about the real world, research projects they have also completed.

We hope to see you there!

NOTE: There are very clear event parking and building signs posted at all site locations.
