FIRST LEGO League HYDRO DYNAMICS Tournament Registration Has Opened!

By | FIRST LEGO League | No Comments

Welcome to the HYDRO DYNAMICS season! Tournament registration is now open. You can register your team for a tournament by going to the ColoradoFIRST website here.

PowerUp!
To help make you all as successful as possible, we are holding our annual PowerUp! workshop on Saturday September 30 at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (checkout the attached flyer). Great for rookie teams, or tuning for veterans. Experienced coaches, and judges will lead sessions on Mission Strategy, Robot Design & Programming, Project, and Core Values. Participants will have opportunity to ask questions of an official robot game referee, and there’s a Coaches Only session, too. Bring your robot (as it is so far!) and get design advice. Your registration fee also covers entrance to the Museum! Register here. Registration for this workshop is $5.00 per person (team members, team parents and adult mentors only) NOT per team. At least one adult per team is required.

Coaches
Are you a new coach? FIRST Steps is a series of resources for FIRST LEGO League Coaches. The series guides new coaches through their initial season with FIRST LEGO League.

Volunteers
While no longer required for registration, We depend on each team recruiting volunteers. it’s a great way to demonstrate the Core Values, and without enough volunteers we cannot have a tournament!A qualifying tournament in FIRST LEGO League can require up to 100 volunteers! We can’t do what we do for the kids without all the dedicated volunteers. Whether your skills are technical or not, or even a bit rusty, we can use your help. If you want to learn more about volunteering, please check out the volunteer page at coloradofirst.org.

We look forward to enjoying a great season with you! If you have any questions or concerns please email Kevin Popp, the Colorado FIRST LEGO League Operational Partner.PowerUp! 2017 Flyer
