D'FAT has received grant funding to enable the establishment of a local team in the robotics-based problem-solving competition. The First Lego League (FLL) competition involves students aged from 9-16 years in teams of up to 10, to build, program and compete with a robot at state, national and international levels.
As well as having fun, the participants learn about a problem facing modern science and engineering and develop solutions for it. Sessions will be held each Saturday morning from August 25 until November 3, at D'FAT's new meeting place at the Salvation Army’s New Norfolk headquarters at 79 Hamilton Rd.
Register your interest or obtain more information by visiting the D'FAT Facebook page, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Matt Hill on 0459 096 003. A galactic adventure awaits. D'FAT acknowledges the support for this project from the Children's University Tasmania (operated by the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment, University of Tasmania) and the Salvation Army Derwent Valley.
