Junior FIRST LEGO League is an annual, team-based program for 1st-3rd grade. The season begins in August with the end-of-season Junior Expo usually in November.

The Junior FIRST LEGO League is a program for 1st through 3rd graders to get their hands on the robot and get familiar with the FIRST Lego League program in a collaborative environment.  Teams of 3 – 6 kids (ages 6 – 9) work together to answer the challenges of the annual theme through a “Show Me” poster presentation and a moving LEGO model. Our goal is for kids to get thinking about the impact they can make in the world through sharing their ideas as well as getting them building and programming.
