Hello Everyone,

My name is Sejal Brahmbhatt and we are hosting a community based robotics 
tournament as a pre-FLL warm-up. 
I’m looking for teams of 3-4 kids per team to compete in a FLL -style challenge 
on  FLL size field (4 ft by 8ft). Every year IAVA organizes robotics tournament 
on the lines of FLL. This provides young kids a platform to get early exposure to 
Lego robotics. This year there will be three challenges to be overcome by the 
robots built using NXT or EV3 robotic kits. In the tournament, teams will be 
competing head to head against other teams in various robotic sporting events. 
All three events will be an elimination style tournaments. The robots will have 
to complete the autonomously in some challenges, but there will also be tele-
operated challenges. There will be an open house soon where the challenges 
will be unveiled, please stay tuned  More information will be provided at the 
open house. I will let you know the details of open house once you email me to 
pre-register your team. Challenge will be out soon. 
Registration is ongoing ,  pre-registration is required.
I have teams already registering , so spots are limited.
Register soon by emailing :

If you are a Rookie team and have your Robot kit and want to participate in 
this competition this will give you a great learning practice pre-FLL season. 
Even if you do not know much about Robotics and are interested to learn/know 
more about constructing, designing and programming Robotics for IAVA 
Robotics Competition, our tournament sponsors Engineering for Kids can help 
you get started.  Engineering for Kids would be happy to mentor / coach your 
team in one hour blocks by scheduled appointments. But you need to pre-
register with us first for the IAVA Robotics competition. So, if you have an FLL 
team, where 3-4 kids are up for a robotics challenge, you may want to 
participate.  Once you pre-register, I will inform you about open house .  The 
cost is $40 per team. Registration will cover your field kit.
We can only take teams until the registration reaches its limit, so please email 
and register soon.
