WHAT IS FIRST LEGO LEAGUE JR?
FIRST LEGO League Jr. captures young children’s inherent curiosity and directs it toward discovering the wonders of science and technology. This program features a real-world scientific concept to be explored through research, teamwork, construction, and imagination. Guided by adult Coaches, teams use LEGO®bricks to build a model that moves and develop a Show-Me Poster to illustrate their journey.
Children ages 6 to 10 get to:
Design and build a challenge-related model using LEGO components.
Create a Show-Me poster and practice presentation skills.
Explore challenges facing today’s scientists.
Discover real-world math and science.
Begin developing teamwork skills.
Choose to participate in events and celebrations.
Engage in team activities guided by FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values.

Registration day of event is between 1:30 – 1:50 PM. Coaches will be able to finalize the registration process by turning in their team Consent and Release documentation. This can be with either the team roster from their FIRST dashboard or individual team member Consent and Release forms. A combination of the two is acceptable as well. All members listed on the Team Information Sheet must be accounted for through one or both of those methods. In return, coaches will receive their team’s schedule for the day, their pit assignment, and team event materials.
Badging: All Event-Day Participants must have a badge to participate in the expo. This is a part of how we put safety “FIRST.” Badging for team-associated individuals is in the form of lanyards that will be given to the coach when they check-in on event day. It is essential that your Team Roster information on the FIRST Dashboard is up to date with your total number of student team members or you will not have enough lanyards. Please note that this is an open and free event at the library. As such, there will be community spectators that your team may share their projects with and introduce them to FIRST.
Parking: There is a parking garage across from the library on Central Ave. The cost to park is approximately $2 per hour
