Get Pumped

On your mark, get set, flow! Drink in the 2017/2018 HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season and learn all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. In the 2017/2018 FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, students age 9 to 16* from 80 countries will make a splash with HYDRO DYNAMICS. What might become possible when we understand what happens to our water?

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

Registration is open now at www.firstinspires.org

The Tennessee Valley Authority is finalizing their agreement to pay the $225 registration fee for all veteran and rookie teams in the TVA service area.

This includes all teams in Tennessee.  Teams interested in participating in the Hydro Dynamics Challenge should NOT pay their registration fee until this agreement with TVA is finalized.  Watch your team dash board for a credit or monitor our East Tennessee web site for more information.  Discussions are also underway to consider how to reimburse teams that have already paid their registration fee.  More to come as information is provided.
