For many years the Queen City Rotary has been supporting local organizations that work with the youth of greater Manchester. These local organizations provide services such as food and clothing, school support, and even bicycle repair. Their goal is simply to make Manchester a better place to live for kids.
This year the Queen City Rotary awarded
$37,000.00 in grants to some amazing programs including the NH LEGO League. On behalf of a new robotics team Aidan Hughes accepted the grant at a morning breakfast meeting in Manchester. “Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 to field a team for the upcoming season of FIRST TECH CHALLENGE, and the Queen City Rotary has helped us get off to a great start” stated Dan Hughes Founder of the NH LEGO League.
Since 2009 the NH LEGO League has placed teams in both Jr. FIRST LEGO and FIRST LEGO League programs. In 2013 their all girls team “Rainbow Blizzard Queens” Won the Chairkids award for the top performing Jr. FLL team in New Hampshire. In 2014 their FLL team won the top Programming Award for outstanding technical documentation and engineering process at the NH FLL State Competition.
“Moving to FTC is a natural progression for our kids; it also allows us to expand our robotics program both on the competition and educational side” Hughes noted.
