ACTC grant can help new FIRST LEGO teams

July 31, 2013 —     Ashland Community and Technical College has established a challenge grant to support the formation of new FIRST LEGO League Robotics teams in the FIVCO area, including Carter County.

    FIRST LEGO League teams plan, design, build, program and test robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology. The ACTC challenge grant will provide part of the funding needed to start new teams. Ten grants of up to $1,000 each are available, and teams are challenged to raise an additional $500 to $1,500 through fundraiser activities or membership fees.

    To apply for a grant, FIRST LEGO League teams should be new and exist as part of a school or established community group or organization in the FIVCO area of Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup and Lawrence counties.

    Each FLL team may have up to 10 team members ages nine to 14 and must have at least one team leader or captain over 18 years of age to facilitate and oversee team activities.

    Challenge Grant applications must be submitted by Friday, Aug. 30. For an application or questions, contact Karen Coburn, ACTC Manager of External Education Programs, at (606)326-2129 or email
