    Time  to start planning for the 2013 season!

Start planning over the summer for the annual Los Altos Robotics FIRST LEGO League (FLL) program.  FLL is a worldwide program with over 16,000 teams involved.  This year's challenge, Nature's Fury, will help kids explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves and more that we call natural disasters. The robot game will be announced worldwide on August 27th, 2013, but team registration is open now! (For more information see links below.)

Talk to your friends and others at your school and in your neighborhood to start forming teams so you'll be ready to go when school resumes.  The Participating in Los Altos Robotics FLL page also has the "I Need a Team List" that you can use to find a team for your child or more team members for your team.

Parents are welcome to attend an informational meeting: August 27th, 2013 7:30pm-9pm at Mountain View High School (3535 Truman Avenue, Mountain View), Room 521. Come join us to learn more about the program and network with other coaches/parents. Here are last year's presentation slides.

Los Altos Robotics Scrimmage and Tournament

Tournaments are lots of fun for spectators. If a child may want to participate in the future, they can stop by the event for an hour to see what it is like. If you are already a participant at another venue, please do not video robots. If you would like to help run the FLL tournaments, please email or call at the contact information listed below. Participation is great fun and great way to give back to the community.

Recent Robotics Competitions

The 2011 FLL season was great. Visit the season results and further details for 2011 and prior seasons.

Check out our FLL History page for what happened in past seasons at Los Altos and in NorCalFLL tournaments. We also have history of prior years including some videos.


 

State and National Award Page

Most robotics teams have fun, work hard, learn a ton, and demonstrate gracious professionalism. A few of our local area teams have also been fortunate enough to be recognized at some of the major state and national robotics tournaments. The Los Altos Robotics State and National Team Award Page recognizes those teams and we hope inspires future teams.
