first lego league
FIRST Lego League (FLL) Qualifying Regional is a program dedicated to introduce and inspire youths into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
How to register
New teams can expect to pay approximately $900 for team registration, a robot kit of parts, and a Field Setup Kit. There will be additional costs for event participation, travel, food, team shirts and other optional items.
Veteran teams will pay less since the robot set can be used year after year. However, team registration must be purchased every season.
Grants are also available locally, regionally and nationally by many corporations.
For more information refer to the FIRST website.
What is FLL? What are Core values?

2017/2018 Challenge - Hydro dynamics
This year's project is called Hydro Dynamics! Teams will identify the ways water is transported, used, and disposed.
Team's will research ways people use water in their community everyday while identifying an improvement that can be made in the current human water cycle.
Once a problem is identified, teams will try to find current solutions that have been created to improve the human water cycle.. Using the research found on current solutions, teams will use that as an example to create their own unique and innovative solution to improve their community.
