General Info

This league provides an opportunity for students to learn STEM in a hands on fun environment. Students should make the decisions and do all the work including,  strategy, building, programming, researching, choosing a problem and innovative solution, and presenting at a tournament. Adults are expected to give guidance, provide structure, encouragement, and most of all, a fun experience. Instead of doing the work, mentors and parents should guide students by asking questions.

The league will meet 4 times. All teams must participate in at least 2 of the 3 qualifing meets (10/9/19, 11/13/19, 1/8/20) and the finals meet (1/29/20). Teams are allowed to participate in all the meet 4 meets.
