HANDS ON SKILL METER
We will be using this "tick" image to illustrate what is the degree of involvement in practicing HANDS ON SKILLS at our workshops.
As most of our workshops will train and present different level of HANDS ON SKILLS to the youth in organise, build, construct, program and document. We feel that this meter will provide parents a better indication of the skills involved.
Our HANDS ON SKILLS meter will be measuring from 1, 3, 5 ticks.
Basic - Snap on, glue, instructions provided
LEGO ROBOT RESOURCES
fischertechnik® is the flexible construction system for young and older system designers alike. Produced in Germany to high standards, these robot kits allow a multitude of systems and 3D models to be created by slotting precision-engineered parts together.

Team 2047 Little Scientist Strikes again at First Lego League 2006 Mississauga's Only Independent Team
Little Scientist team joined FIRST LEGO LEAGUE in 2005 as a rookie team and have since advanced to a level where parents, educators, and the community have known us to be a formidable force in the independents category in junior educational robotics. We are an independent team not supported by any school, the team is financially supported by part susidy from Little Scientist and the youths' parents. It is a great value program for youths that has demonstrated ability and interest.
2005 Team 603 Award for Against All Odds (being a rookie entry)
In 2007, we are hoping that we can have 2 teams of 8 youths each joining us and represent us from Mississauga's community. This is a great opportunity for local youths aged 9-14 who have demonstrated ability in LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT platform and working with other youths.

This is an ever growing list of mini-challenges meant to reinforce the class training material and to provide an exercise to use during FLL practice sessions. They can be done by multiple groups within the session and should be easy to follow. Once the kids understand the basic concept, they may be able to see how, or if, they could use the concept in some way on their robot.
If you want to contribute your own mini-challenge let us know. We'll post them. These are in no particular order.
