W.A.F.F.L.E.S. Help Hub

During the FIRST LEGO League Challenge season in the fall, the W.A.F.F.L.E.S. offer a drop-in Help Hub for area teams on most Friday nights (see our calendar in the footer for specific times).  Field tables and challenge sets will be provided for teams to share, but please bring your own robot, LEGO, laptop, power cords, etc.  At least one adult must accompany and supervise visiting teams.  Experienced volunteers will be on-hand to clarify rules, help you develop building and programming skills, give feedback on your presentations, and more.  November 8th, 2019 is reserved strictly for team scrimmages.  Teams must RSVP at least 24 hours in advance to info@wafflesrobotics.com to join in on the fun and receive directions on how to access the downtown location (near Staples).
