The local FLL tournament will be held on Sunday 13 November 2011.
A training workshop for FLL coaches and mentors was held on Friday 12 August 2011. It was attended by teachers from several schools and industry mentors from BAE Systems and SAGE. Luan Heimlich, the Operational Partner for FLL in Australia, conducted the training workshop. Workshop attendees gained information about FLL, an understanding of the role of coaches and mentors and experience in programming LEGO robots. Luan’s presentation is available.
