Tonight, our FIRST Senior Mentor, Randall Phillips will be featured on Magik 901 Live Show WMQM 1600AM & 93.3FM (The People Station), as they discuss what our FLL Team Members are discovering about Robotics & STEM-based education.

Play is serious business. Through play
children (and adults) learn how to use their imaginations, to experiment
with different ways of doing things. This might seem like it has
relevance only for their self-development, but it’s also through
imagination and experimentation that the human race as a collective
arrives at the solutions to its problems.
Pictures and results will be posted here shortly, and coaches should be getting the team feedback within the next few day. We will also be producing a video from the event (and it will be posted when it is completed).
We do have a few lost and found items from the event (use the “Contact us” form if you think you left something) and we still have some items left from the qualifiers as well.
We will need teams to demo at the Memphis FRC Regional, so please let us know if your team can come out and demo during that event (Mar 18-21, 2020 at Collierville HS). We will especially need teams on Friday March 20 (VIP DAY).
An updated Tournament Manual is available HERE. Only one major change: Page 8 – tournament schedule has been updated as follows:
Team Pit map has been created and is available HERE. If your school has more than one team, or you are sharing resources with another school/team, please check the map to ensure you are grouped together.
Please note: due to the extra time needed for robot inspection this year, please make sure your team is on-time for all your events!
We were very surprised when it arrived since we just ordered it two days before they started shipping (and they were taking preorders for months).
We purchased the education kit (base kit plus expansion set). Both came, but only the basic kit has a tote….the expansion set does not have a tote.
We already had a pre-release version of the software installed on our PC…but it saw the updated and loaded the latest and greatest software and when we plugged in the brick is saw it was not up to date and updated it too (much better than old software for EV3’s)
Again a reminder that SPIKE is NOT replacing EV3’s for FLL and Lego is NOT phasing out EV3’s at this time….both SPIKE and EV3’s will be supported by Lego and are legal for FLL!
We’re excited to share that this year, we’ll be making FIRST®Tech Challenge Jump Start available early, exclusively for graduating members of FIRST LEGO League teams.
Jump Start will provide rookie teams with
their kit of parts earlier than the normal competitive season timeline.
Teams will also be the first to have access to the new REV Control Hub,
which will be introduced into our storefront next season. The new
Control Hub combines all the power of the current Android handset with
the Expansion Hub into a single device.
As in previous years, Jump Start teams will
purchase registration for the 2019/2020 (current year) season and
receive a grant for their 2020/2021 (next season) registration.
