FLL Robotics (Grades 4-7)

Robotics is a project that takes place August through January of each 4-H year.   In Gillespie County 4-H, we compete as teams under the FIRST FLL (First Lego League).  More information about FIRST and FLL can be found by visiting http://www.usfirst.org).   Sign-ups for the project normally begin in July of each year and the project fee is $75.00/participant.
