One of our long time members, Renee, has funding and an existing team for First LEGO League specifically geared towards children on the Aspergers spectrum. She asked us to put out this post for her.
Rocket City RoboSkills will be starting again soon. We are a parent led First Lego League Robotics Group.We have a few openings (limit of 10 kids for a team) for middle school aged kids with Aspergers. MindGear Labs has graciously offered to let us meet there this year on Fridays from 4-6 pm. Please email Renee Lowder at rCarbee@gmail.com if you are interested or contact MindGear Labs.
This is possible by a grant from AUVSI Pathfinder Organization and is sponsored by the Autism Resource Foundation. Parents participation is required. This is a free activity for kids with Aspergers. Please see www.RoboSkills.blogspot.com to see what we did last year and what it is all about.
Coach, Renee Lowder
We are glad to support Renee and RoboSkills. If you have a spectrum child who is interested in LEGO Robotics you owe it to him/her to drop Renee a line.
