FLL NYC Championship, Javits Center 2011
Congratulations to all our teams for their fabulous performance in the NYC FIRST LEGO League Championship at the Jacob Javits Center!

Forest Hills Robotics League attended the FIRST Championship with two Jr. FLL teams(Age 6-9), and three FLL teams(Age 9-14).

Our Junior teams (Lego Monsters and Club Builders) participated in the Jr. FLL Exposition and showcased their research work and creative LEGO models in response to the Body Forward Challenge. They each won a JFLL award for their fantastic model and display!
  • Club Builders won the Best Team Spirit Award.
  • LEGO Monsters won the LEGO Technology Award.

Our three FLL teams (Planetary Forces, Robo Squad and Mindstorm Mechanics) competed for the NYC FLL Championship against 80 other teams from around the five boroughs. Two of our teams walked away with the following awards:
  • Planetary Forces won 4th place in Research
  • Mindstorm Mechanics won 4th Place in Robot Design.

FHRL was also mentioned on the front page of Forest Hills Ledger and Whitestone Times in the March issue.

FLL NYC Championship, Javits Center 2010
The Forest Hills teams successfully competed in the FLL Citywide tournament at the Javits Center on March 17, 2010. Though we did not win any award this time, we did come in pretty close in the top quarter of each category. Considering it is our first time participating in the citywide championship, we did mighty well!
Next year, we will come back again, bigger and better!
Since our teams are probably the only ones that are community based, we got quite some press attention from the media.

Here is a clip of our team competing on the game table!
