This league will go through the first week in December. The price for this program will be $50 and include a t-shirt (scholarships are available). This program will close with 10 students per team as the maximum.

Lego Robotics League Coach & 2018 Theme

A recent College of Science Marshall graduate, Terry Dillman, will be coaching all of these teams. Terry is planning on working for a year and then returning to Marshall to get his Masters in Education next fall.

Every year there is a new theme announced for the competition – this year is the 30th season of this program. This year’s theme is INTO ORBITSM and the 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League season will transport your team into space, where you’ll explore, challenge, and innovate in the vast expanse of space.

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the INTO ORBIT season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, Please teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
