2014 GSWISE FIRST LEGO League Opportunity!
In the 2014 FLL WORLD CLASS℠ Challenge, teams will redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class – FLL WORLD CLASS!
In the World Class Challenge, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 to solve a set of missions as well as research, develop, and share their innovative solutions for the World Class Challenge. Obstacles will relate to how youth learn in everyday classrooms.

Student Tools For Emergency Planning Training
Saturday, March 29, 10:00 a.m.-noon, Chinook
Learn more about how a group of Girl Scouts are solving a state of Wisconsin problem as it relates to emergency planning. The training will include a presentation on STEP (Student Tools for Emergency Planning). STEP is designed to teach students how to prepare for various emergencies including tornadoes, flooding and storms and encourages them to share the information with their families and to develop their own family emergency plan. Everyone in attendance will receive a STEP bag to assist in their emergency planning. If you are looking for Bronze, Silver, or community service ideas, STEP training may be of interest to you. Presented by GSWISE robotics team, The Einsteinbots.
