Jr. FIRST LEGO League – Information on registering

This year’s Jr. FIRST LEGO League challenge will be a fun one – DISASTERS!

How to register your team . . . . there are two ways to register.

OPTION 1: Register ONCE by registering directly with Glen Ridge First by Oct. 31, 2013. There is a $50 registration fee by US First. By registering directly with GR First, you register once, your team is automatically registered for the April 5 Jr. FIRST LEGO League showcase and you can start getting information directly from us.  Direct registration with Glen Ridge First https://glenridgefirst.wufoo.com/forms/jr-fll-team-registration-form/. Once you register, you will receive an email about next steps within a week.

OPTION 2: This is a two-step registration:

1- Register directly with US First https://my.usfirst.org/jr.fll/tims/site.lasso.

2- Register separately with Glen Ridge First if you wish to participate in the April 5 Jr. FLL showcase  https://glenridgefirst.wufoo.com/forms/jr-fll-team-registration-form/.

Whatever option you take, the coaches will need to schedule sessions with the team to have fun.

What is Junior FIRST® LEGO® League? Guided by adult coaches and Jr. FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL) Core Values, students (ages 6 to 9) work together as a team to answer a year challenge. The challenge has three parts: Core Values, the Show-Me Poster and the LEGO Model. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology and engineering through a real world challenge. For more information on Jr.FLL, please go to http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/jr.fll.

What is expected of the Jr. FLL Team? Team members will need to do the following within 8, 9 or more one-hour sessions:

  • Design and construct a model using LEGO bricks and moving parts. If the children are more advanced, they can use additional motorized accessories or even software to program the select movement.
  • Create a Show-Me Poster, which presents what they have learned as well as about the team.
  • Optional: Glen Ridge FIRST will have an exhibition for all registered Glen Ridge Jr.FLL teams as well as a formal review. – April 5, 2014!!!!
