It’s that time again…Let’s Get Bready to Crumble! The 3rd Annual Crumble Rumble First Lego League competition is Saturday, November 17th. The Flying Toasters host this BIG outreach event! It’s a great opportunity for the Toasters to provide opportunities for 4th and 5th graders to stretch themselves to meet fascinating challenges. The theme this year is space – “Into Orbit Global Challenge.” You can see a video of the robot challenge here:
We will need all hands on deck for this event! We hold the event at Millennium Middle School with setup Friday evening from 5:30pm – around 8:30pm, and reappear about 7:00am on Saturday to run it. Clean up ends around 5:30pm. These are mandatory volunteer events for all Flying Toaster students. While the students are great volunteers, it takes over 100 volunteers and parents/adults, all of which are vital to our success. Please consider volunteering and supporting our team’s effort!
We have a number of opportunities for adults and students. There will be some responsibilities before the event so that our volunteers are prepared. We will send out volunteer screening materials (mandatory background checks per the FIRST Robotics organization guideline) and also some on-line training with a simple test that can be taken at your convenience.
We should know the volunteer roles we need to fill this week. In the meantime, however, we are hoping you will keep the Crumble Rumble on your calendar. If you know you can or cannot participate, please let us know. Otherwise, we will be sending out more specific information as soon as we have it.
