Good Morning Everyone!!

FLL Teams/participants needed for the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival! 
We'll have a table and we're looking for teams to spend the day (Saturday and Sunday) doing robot demonstrations and talking with folks about VA-DC FLL!!

We're looking for mostly NoVA/DC participants since there isn't a budget for hotel rooms, but if you're ok with taking care of your own accommodations, we'll certainly welcome teams from anywhere!! 

Please Contact Kacey Neckowitz: [log in to unmask] to volunteer!

Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Div1 lower age limit

The official age range for FLL is 9-14, as of Jan 1 each year. The upper limit is enforced, but the lower limit is left to the discretion of coaches.

There is no lower age limit, so yes, they can.  Personally, I would consider 3rd graders borderline -- some do great, some just want to play with LEGOs.  As long as you and the older kids don't have unreasonable expectations, are patient with them, and find a way to include them, they will learn alot and will positively surprise you.  But, I wouldn't push a kid to move up against their will; doing a (or another) year of JrFLL can be very rewarding.

Hi all,

        I am a new coach to FLL an forming a team for 2012.
Some of the kids I've so far are born as follows. I am not getting a
clear picture if the little ones who just turned 9 this year in 2012 will be
able to participate in Div 1.

participant 1 : Jan 5th 2000
participant 2:  Feb 10th 2000
participant 3:  Jun 10th 2001
participant 4:  Aug 13th 2001
participant 5:  Jan  20th 2003
participant 6:  March 7th 2003

I realise that participant 1,2,3,4 are eligible to be in Div1.
My question is for participant 5 and 6. Can they be in Div 1 too?
Can anyone please help?

Thanks,
Medhini
