SCIENCE SATURDAYS: Three-hour classes that explore how some of the coolest things on the planet work. Hands-on learning all-out fun! For children in grades 2-5. 


FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is an exciting and fun global robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm for discovery, science, & technology in kids entering grades 4-5. There are non-competitive  and competitive teams. FLL teams embark on adventurous challenges based on current, real-world issues. Guided by a team coach and assisted by mentors, the kids: engage in playful and meaningful learning; experience fun, creative, hands-on learning; think like scientists and engineers; connect to their community; experiment and overcome obstacles; build self-esteem and confidence.

FLL will meet in September and continue through December depending on the FLL Competition Schedule. Teams will meet between 2-4 hours per week, however, additional time may be required depending on the teams progress.
Actual practice days/times will be determined by the coach.This program requires volunteer coaches and mentors to run. If you are interested in coaching or assistant coaching, please contact Angie Flanigan: angelaflanigan@oshkoshymca.org.
