Northome 4-H Afterschool - FLL Robotics

For roughly 10 fast-paced weeks, 4-H youth will work in teams to overcome obstacles and meet challenges. They will learn from and interact with their peers as well as adult Coaches and mentors. Teams will work to find creative solution to the problems presented to them in the FLL Challenge. They will then compete in local and regional tournaments. After the hard work and a lot of fun, youth come away feeling empowered to use science and technology concepts to change the world around them. In addition, they cultivate life skills such as planning, brainstorming, collaboration, and teamwork, as well as research, presentation and technical skills.

AGES:  This program is for any youth between the ages of 9 and 14. Youth who were 14 on January 1, 2017 are also eligible to participate.

TEAM SIZE LIMIT:  To keep an optimal learning environment and due to the limited number of Lego Robotic Kits, there is a limit to 6-8 youth per team.

DATES:  Mondays and Wednesdays starting September 20 and concluding with the Regional Tournament in Northome on Saturday, December 2. As tournament draws near additional team practices may be scheduled by Coach Schneider or Coach Waller.

TIME:  after school to 5:00 p.m. 

LOCATION:  Northome Public School

HOW TO REGISTER:  team members need to complete the Annual Enrollment at mn.4honline.com.
