DHMS is hosting an FLL “practice tournament” on Saturday, October 29th.
Here are the details.
10th Annual Dakota Hills Lego-FLL Practice Tournament
Who: Any FLL teams within District 196 (notably for teams from Dakota Hills, Northview, Red Pine, Woodland, Glacier Hills and Pinewood)
What: A First Lego League (FLL) Practice Tournament
Where: Dakota Hills Cafeteria
When: Saturday, October 29th from Noon to 4 PM
How: No RSVP is needed, teams need to bring their own FLL gear, computers, and extension cord/electrical equipment
Description: The event is mostly a common practice session as teams program, try out the robots, and use trial-and-error on the FLL field tables. Eagan HS Robotics students will be on hand to mentor and support FLL teams. There is a lot of sharing of ideas and help that is exchanged between teams. The final hour is a head-to-head tournament-styled competition that is like the actual regional tournaments. This event continues to grow as teams find this to be a helpful preparatory experience to their first regional competition in November/December. Each team is given its own staging table area but must bring in their own FLL gear, computer(s), and extension cords. Three regulation FLL tables will be provided and available for teams to practice on.
