Good news for public school teams (elementary and middle) who applied for the OPSI iGrant for FIRST LEGO League! We learned from OSPI late yesterday that they have communicated with your school district that your grant has been approved. Just a reminder that the grant is a reimbursement grant so if you have not done so already – please register your team(s) today! FIRST will be closing FLL registration by early next week and we want to make sure you get registered (add link)
You can use these funds as well for professional development. STEM Robotics 101 (http://stemrobotics.cs.pdx.edu/node/2643) is a free CS/STEM curriculum for new Robotics teachers which enables educators to customize an approachable Introductory Robotics class that plays to their unique strengths, while also meeting the individual needs of your students and goals of your school administrators.
