Who knew LEGOs could help change the world? Way cooler than a science class, LEGO Robotics gives girls the chance to understand, design and build their own fully-functioning robot. 

On Saturday, February 2, 2013, Girl Scouts of Nassau County had 7 FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams compete at the SBPLI, Inc. FIRST LEGO League Qualifier Tournament at Central Islip Senior High School.  As usual yesterday was a fun and exciting day at the tournament, with six of the seven GSNC teams moving on to the Championship Tournament in March.
