Eaglesnest Robotics welcomes the Rhode Island students ages 9-14.
Eaglesnest Robotics is currently accepting applications to populate our 2013 FIRST LEGO League team, whom will be taking on the new Nature's Fury Challenge© for FIRST LEGO League.
Location of meetings: North Kingstown/Warwick, area
Important Dates to Follow
Application Deadline- May 30, 2013
Teams members announced: June 1, 2013
Here are things we look at a when we are reviewing the applicants:
Commitment to the Team(Displayed Interest)- Your child's eligibility could be determined by just easily showing his or her interest by simply filling out the application questionnaire and completing a one paragraph essay. We are not looking to grade the students grammar capabilities but we are looking for a sense of commitment from the student. This simple characteristic is vital to the team's progress and will be considered when the student's application is reviewed.
Availability- Meetings are held twice a week every week during the season for the FLL team, Starting Sept 3 and as we get closer to the competition we go to three times a week. In the preseason( for 201e only) May -Aug, the Team will meet once every other week for Mentorship meetings, Field Trips, Team building, and fund raising activities and more.
- Unique Skills-If all but one applicant indicates that they want to build robots, and the remaining applicant indicates he or she has experience in programming, this rare interest will be an asset to the team. Likewise, the research portion of the competition often gets less attention than the Robot table work. If an applicant indicates a strong interest in reading, writing, and public speaking, he might make an excellent addition to the team as its Research Team Leader.
All students boys and girls, ages 9-14 , are invited to apply. Joining our Club will also require a commitment from the parents also. A good team does not run well without parent support. Good luck and thank you for considering our team! I promise a great year.
The forms for applying can be found below according to the teams you are applying for. Please fill them out and send them to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise to answer your questions promptly.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting you and having a wonderful Robotics year!
