A couple of weeks ago we mentioned the FLL success of The Brick Girls, a team with ties to Junior Tech Academy. They made it to the district championships in mid January, and their success story continues … they have qualified for the FLL Ohio State tournament, and in doing so won the Project Presentation Award! This is a tremendous achievement and we are very proud of these 6 girls and their great coaches.
In the picture on the left you can see them together with the OmegaBots team who also moved on to the State championship. For those who want to see an FLL State tournament in action, the robot competition is open to the public and starts at 7:45am EST on Sunday Feb 7 at the Ervin J. Nutter Center at Wright State University, 3640 Colonel Glenn Highway in Dayton, Ohio.
And if you want to join an FLL team – Junior Tech Academy will start recruiting teams for the 2016-2017 competition in the next few months, and any child aged 9-14 currently enrolled in our classes is eligible to join. So if you haven’t registered yet, join our classes now. The next introductory class starts the week of Feb 29!
