From the Affiliate Partner: Desh Bagley
I am proud of each and every one of the 80+ FIRST LEGO League teams in our Central West “Suncoast” region. We are bringing robotics for kids to Citrus County in the north through Tampa Bay, down the Suncoast to Ft. Myers in southwest Florida, and inland to counties like Glades and Hendry.
Many of the children in these counties have never experienced LEGO robotics. It’s time to change that, and it’s going to take all of us. FIRST LEGO League teams should be as common as Little League and Pop Warner. Remember, robotics is the only sport where everyone can go pro!
This blog is for coaches, mentors, volunteers, sponsors, team member, and anyone interested in STEM programs for kids—whether you are new to FIRST LEGO League or have several seasons under your belt.
Here’s what I’d like for us to accomplish together:
I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences. Please reach out to me with your ideas in the comments, via Facebook, Twitter, or through email at SuncoastFLL@gmail.com.
