Girls…..so you liked the Into Orbit season and working with Robots and wish to learn more about STEM fields……
Middle and high school girls can join the Herff College of Engineering this summer for Girls Experiencing Engineering (GEE), a program featuring hands-on, team-based design challenges and a variety of STEM speakers. The goal of GEE is to inspire girls to consider STEM (particularly engineering) careers. Applications for the 2019 GEE program are now available. Space is limited; register here>>

Just watched the video feed of the game reveal for the 2019-20 FLL League season. The game is called “City Shaper“. I grabbed as many screen captures as I could of the board. and they are shown below. This is only the board, full details come out in August!
Here is the full video broadcast from Championships in Houston:
Last night, Tennessee Valley Robotics, lead by Charley Spencer was honored at the Herff Awards Ceremony and inducted into the Kellogg Society for their work in STEM Robotics in west Tennessee.
Before starting Tennessee Valley Robotics, which sponsors the West TN FLL Championship and many robotics events and teams in TN, Charley worked for TVA and was instrumental in forming the partnership between FIRST and TVA that sponsors ALL FLL Teams in TN (and the entire TVA service area).
Congratulations to Tennessee Valley Robotics and Charley Spencer and thank you for all you do for STEM Robotics in West TN!

We hope you saw the exciting news that LEGO® Education has just announced their newest STEAM learning solution – SPIKE™ Prime. You can see more information about SPIKE Prime on their social media channels and website.
The SPIKE Prime kits will be shipping July or Aug 2019.
SPIKE Prime will be approved for use in FIRST® LEGO® League starting in August 2019, and will participate alongside Mindstorms EV3, NXT, and RCX.
It does NOT mean that you have to buy new robots, it just means that teams can use them if they wish. Really when was the last time you saw an RCX robot at an FLL event (do you even know what that is)?
