IEEE ET Section to Sponsor First Lego League Team(s)

The Section has approved the sponsorship of one or two First Lego League teams in 2009. The Section is looking for members who would be interested in being coaches or mentors for middle school students who join the team(s). Team registration begins on May 4, 2009. The 2009 challenge will be released in September. The Tennessee competition is usually the first week in December at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville. Learn more about First Lego League. Also visit the Tennessee First Lego League to see what teams have participated in Tennessee.

This is a K-12 outreach project in keeping with IEEE's Education Activities goal of encouraging pre-college kids interest in pursuing science and engineering careers. 

If you are interested, please complete the Lego League Questionnaire.
