Junior FIRST LEGO League
Junior FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL) is a fun way to channel the creativity and energy of young kids toward science and technology.
Jr.FLL is a flexible, noncompetitive, community-based program where teams of 2 - 6 kids and a coach research a topic and build a model with moving parts to illustrate their topic. There's even an option to add robotic components and programming for more ambitious teams.
Teams typically work for 6-8 weeks on a project, but you can extend or compress the project to meet your needs. Teams can be formed around school, home, community groups, scouts, camps...anywhere you can get a group of kids to meet regularly.
Jr.FLL promotes an environment of cooperative learning and sharing, rather than competition. So rather than a competition event for Jr.FLL teams, Jr.FLL Expos are held throughout the year. Teams may host their own Expo and you may find running your own event is just as fun as doing the project. As Expos are announced throughout North Carolina, we will post them on our website and announce them on our Facebook page, so please check back all year long.
If Jr.FLL sounds incredibly flexible, it is! A registration fee of $50 and almost any set of LEGOs is all you need to get started. FIRST provides instructions and guidelines, you provide the kids and leadership, and you'll be amazed at the results. For more detailed information, please visit the Jr.FLL website here.
