FRC Torbotics 2080 is teaming up with FLL Bayou Builders 4043 to host our fourth annual FLL Challenge Jump Start Saturday, August 21st at Hammond High Magnet School. This event will cater to both rookie and veteran teams with breakout sessions on programming, robot design and team development geared to the needs of each group. We are also putting together a panel of professionals in the areas of transportation and product delivery to help spark potential project research ideas.
To attend, please fill out the registration form below.
At least one adult will need to attend with each team. This adult can be the team's coach, mentor, interested parent, etc. All students must be accompanied by an adult to the robot design, programming and professional panel break out sessions. During the last 30 minutes of the event, we will invite all teams to participate in a fun Core Values exchange focused on collaboration and working together.
There will be a Torbotics member assigned to each FLL team, who will be your team's guide throughout the event to assist you, as needed. Several of our FRC team members started their FIRST journey in FLL Challenge and have also been involved in FTC. They are a great resource to answer some of your questions from a student's perspective.
