FIRST LEGO League

Runnymede Robotics works with local schools to assist in their FLL journey.

Team 1310 students work new FLL teams as mentors to help them develop design and programming skills. The students in the Runnymede Masters program take Mindstorms programming as part of their grade 9 highschool course in technology. Visit the Runnymede web site to learn more about the Runnymede Masters program.
