Congratulations to Girl Scouts of Nassau County's FLL and FTC Teams on their Successful 2013 Robotics Season!



It’s that time of the year…. our Robotics season has come to a close.  But there is no reason to be sad, because Girl Scouts of Nassau County gets to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of our Robotics Teams and look towards the future of Robotics in Nassau County.  We have the opportunity to share the world of STEM with many new faces and young minds. 


All of our FLL and FTC teams, with help from their coaches and mentors, had an amazing season! 


GSNC FLL Teams
Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s seven FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams, competed in the Student Business Partnership of Long Island's (SBPLI) 9th Annual FLL Qualifying Tournament. Of the seven, six teams won awards and moved on to the SBPLI Championship Tournament!
