FIRST® LEGO® League
The FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) is a robotics competition through FIRST® specifically organized for middle school students. Our three partner schools, Maple Dale, Glen Hills, and Bayside, prepare the middle-schoolers for high school FEAR. This year during FLL®’s six week building season, the students (with the aid of their adult and high school mentors) constructed a robot out of LEGO®s, programmed their robot using VTech computers, did a research project that helped them create an innovative solution to a problem of human-animal interaction, and focused on team building and the core values. On November 12th, they will participate in a competition at Marquette University High School. This year, both the Mercury Mechs, and the Titanium Thingamajigs qualified for sectionals, while Patrick O’Hare won Best Mentor Award. Last year, the Titanium Thingamajigs, one of our five FLL® teams, won the team building award, and Nicolet FEAR President Lizzy Tong was given an award for being the most influential mentor. There is no doubt that the members of our five FLL® teams will go on to do great things when they come and participate in the Nicolet FEAR program.
