More than 450 students and parents gathered in Brauer Auditorium for the kickoff of the 2016-2017 FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competitive season. Representatives from the Saint Louis Zoo were on hand to introduce this year’s theme, Animal Allies. Teams of students ages 9-16 will explore the relationship between humans and animals.
FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the Animal Allies season, teams will build, test and program an autonomous robot to solve a set of missions. They will also choose and solve a real-world question related to the Animal Allies theme. Good luck to our Rams this season!
