On Saturday, January 24, Anne Arundel Community College will host our 4th annual FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) qualifier tournament, “Battle by the Bay”. The FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is a world-wide robotics program for students from ages 9 to 14. Each year, FLL teams complete a challenge that includes programming a robot to complete a particular course, and doing a project based on that year’s theme. On January 24, AACC will host 16 teams from Anne Arundel and surrounding counties as they present their robots and projects based on this year’s theme, “World Class Education”. The best teams will advance to the Maryland State FLL tournament.
Our events every year are a huge success thanks to the many volunteers from the college community. Again this year, hosting the qualifier tournament provides an opportunity for AACC to showcase our facilities, faculty, staff, and students, while supporting education in our community. We hope you will consider participating in this wonderful event. Volunteers are needed for planning, set-up, tournament judging and refereeing, and much more. Please complete your volunteer registration as soon as possible to make sure you get a “Battle by the Bay” T-shirt in your size.
Volunteers must be at least 13 years old. Volunteers under 18 who are not AACC students must have a parent or responsible adult volunteering at the same time (not necessarily in the save volunteer position).
