FIRST Senior Solutions Theme Announced

The 2012 FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Theme has been released. Next year our teams will be investigating ways to improve the quality of life for seniors by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities. They’ll get to explore the topic of aging and how it may affect a person’s ability to maintain his or her lifestyle – solving issues like getting around, keeping in touch, or staying fit. Teams will research obstacles and then suggest ways to improve the quality of life for the seniors affected.


Herndon Robotics will also be taking advantage of our off-season time to find ways to expand our robotics program to reach more kids and have an impact on our local community.

More to come, looking forward to 2012!
