Get pumped for the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. 2017/2018 season. In the AQUA ADVENTURES Challenge, more than 40,000 children will navigate the uncharted waters of this important resource. Find out where the water you use in your daily life comes from, and what happens on its way to you. Where will this current voyage carry you?
FIRST LEGO League Jr. wants and encourages a diverse ecosystem of thinkers. Bringing these teams together at an official expo is that ‘lightbulb’ moment when you understand FIRST is ‘More than Robots’!
Our all volunteer FIRST LEGO League Jr. committee is passionate about fostering an inclusive and creative learning culture. The dates and venues are scheduled in advance but may change due to team enrollment. In most cases, 9-12 teams take part in an expo. Who are our volunteer reviewers? Typically they are professionals in the field and dedicated high school students from other FIRST programs; all knowledgable and sensitive to the feelings of the children. Caring and fun is a priority!
FIRST LEGO League Jr. official expos will be posted in the calendar and are open to the public at no charge.
When registering, please be advised of the following:
Events for our region are booked and scheduled in advance. Our policy is that no event is ever rescheduled. Event managers have the authority to cancel an event if their facility determines conditions to be unsafe. This policy would apply to inclement weather or any other public safety issue. If an event is not cancelled, it is up to the discretion of the parents and coach to determine if they will attend. No refunds will be given in these situations.
Registration will open in mid January 2018
