Since we helped start the FLL Jr. program at Snail Lake Kindergarten Center, the coordinator invited us to demo at their “Back to School” night. It was a very new experience for us, since all we had to demo was a table with a LEGO model and flyers. We wanted to make the demo engaging for the kindergarteners, so we also had a LEGO plate-covered building table nearby.
The evening went smoothly and we had a lot of fun talking to the parents about FLL Jr. They showed a lot of interest and seemed excited by our description of how well-rounded the program was. Most of them were also amazed at the idea of their children programming a mechanized model; “Are you sure this is for kindergarteners?” was something that we heard again and again. We had a lot of fun at this demo and it only increased our enthusiasm for the start of the FLL Jr. season.
