FIRST LEGO League Jr. (FLL Jr.) is a fun way to channel the creativity and energy of young kids toward science and technology.
FLL Jr. 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 12 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.
The best way to get involved with FLL Jr. is to start a team! A registration fee of $99 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.
When registering a team always be sure to select "Adventist Robotics League" as your region not your geographical location.
