Hello VA/DC FLL Coaches and Teams, *Would your team like to help children in a developing country learn?* *You can put WORLD CLASS to action and help form teams in Haiti! * Do you have old field-set up kits or LEGOS not being used? Have you switched to an EV3 and have an NXT not being used? Would your team like to host a LEGO Drive? VA/DC FLL teams can have a HUGE impact by making it possible for children in Haiti to participate in FLL and "The Lil Sparks LEGO Program (for Jr.FLL age - Jr.FLL hasn't expanded to Haiti yet). Sparky 384, an FRC team from Richmond, is working with the FLL Partner and other supporters in Haiti to make this a reality. We are also providing the Lil Sparks LEGO Program to schools in Ghana. *If you have donations or questions on hosting a LEGO drive, please contact us at [log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]> * URGENT - Needed this week for first delivery - Please help us locate these items: 3 used NXT bricks, booklets that come with NXT kit on how to build a basic robot, LEGO trees and LEGO people (used). Thanks to all the teams that donated to Season I of Lil Sparks - it was a huge success! We now begin Season of the Lil Sparks LEGO program and it is growing! This summer Sparky also engaged 150 children with LEGOS during a Vacation Bible School in Lilavois, Haiti. The children had never seen a LEGO before and one little boy said "This is the best summer of my life!" Thanks to all the teams that provided LEGOS to take to Haiti! Many thanks!!
