FIRST LEGO League Eastern Massachusetts State Championship
If you combine a student sports championship match with a science fair, family reunion, and a dance party, you get close to understanding the energy and excitement of the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Eastern Massachusetts State Championship. Hosted by the Newton LigerBots, FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team made up of students from both Newton high schools, the FLL championship competition attracts the top 4th through 8th-grade teams from around the state who have worked to build robots that perform a variety of tasks for points. Alongside the competition, there will be a maker fair with hands-on activities for kids in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math from companies as wide-ranging as Microsoft, IRobot, the Newton Free Library, Rise Robotics and a long list of others. Join us on December 16 at Newton North high school, 457 Walnut St, Newton, MA, anytime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for fun, learning, and excitement! Admission is free and there will be food available for purchase.
