We're not talking trash - we're cleaning it up!
In the 2015 FIRST® LEGO® League TRASH TREKSM Challenge, 290,000 children ages 9 to 14 from over 80 countries will explore the fascinating world of trash. From collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse, there is more to your trash than meets the eye. Join FIRST LEGO League teams on a Trash Trek to discover the hidden (or not so hidden) world of trash!
Trash Trek Rally and Test Run
Formerly known as the “Scrimmage,” the NEOHBots team is preparing for this year’s Trash Trek competition by holding a test run event in which teams can come and get to know other teams, get answers to some of their difficult questions, meet judges, referees, and other volunteers, and test out their robot.
When? November 7, 2015
Where? Akron’s STEM High School, Central Hower High School, 123 S. Forge St., Akron
Time? 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm
FLL volunteer training for judges and referees will also occur on November 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
Not sure your robot is ready for the event?
No problem! This event is designed so that teams can get some practice with their own robot.
Remember that this is not so much a competition between teams as it is a learning experience and a competition against the Mission! Camaraderie and teamwork is encouraged!
FIRST Lego League is a big, big event and we need all the volunteers we can get! From judging, to refereeing, to volunteer coordination, and more – there is a spot for you on our Volunteer Team.
- Judge: FFL teams work together as teams to create an autonomous robot and present solutions to waste management problems while sticking to the FIRST Lego League Core Values! Judges will observe with throughout their presentation time and score them on different criteria.
- Referee: Just like any other sport, there needs to be someone that knows the rules and ensures that game play is fair and equal. Referees will stay by the play boards and make sure that all the rules are followed.
- Volunteer Coordinator/Front Desk: There are a lot of volunteers and a lot of teams, this volunteer will be responsible for checking in teams and volunteers,traffic control and directions, and general help wherever needed!
