Volunteers make the whole day possible and we're grateful to everyone who does their part to create a wonderful experience for the kids in the CABOCES region.
First Lego League, a world-wide robotics program, was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in Science and Technology. Each year a new program is designed to motivate kids to get excited about research, engineering, math and problem solving, while building self confidence, knowledge and life skills.
Nature's Fury is this year's Challenge and teams are tasked with finding ways to prepare, respond and recover from natural disasters.

The mantra of the program is always its’ Core Values, which are as follows:
We are a team.
We do the work to find solutions with guidance from our coaches and mentors.
We know our coaches and mentors don't have all the answers; we learn together.
We honor the spirit of friendly competition.
What we discover is more important than what we win.
We share our experiences with others.
We display “Gracious Professionalism” in everything we do.
We have fun!
The Student Center at Houghton College is the place to be this Saturday to see 140 9-14 year old students, their coaches and families, and over 3 dozen volunteers discover innovative ways to explore robotics while having fun!
