    First LEGO League

    As a perspective coach this book was indespensible in helping me figure out what the FLL (First Lego League) was all about.

    It clearly describes what hardware is required, challanges might include, the tournament organization, and what to expect. It even offers examples of how to assemble a team, what a donation request letter may look like, and how to prepare for competition. Cost is broken down and the author even explains the difference between purchasing the official Educational NXT set and using a toy store version NXT and what pieces are needed to get the retail version 'up to par' with the official kit.

    Easy to read, well organized, this book is great resource for anyone wanting information about a Mindstorm Lego team.
