Starting a FIRST LEGO League Jr. Team


If you are interested in a FIRST LEGO League Jr. team please contact your local school to see if they have a team already established.  If they do not, consider starting one yourself!

FIRST LEGO League Jr. teams consist of children ages 6 to 10. Teams should have a minimum of  2 students and no more then 6.  A core component of the program is  teamwork and problem solving.  

Teams can be  organized in may different ways:

  • After school programs 
  • Boys & Girls Clubs, Girl and Boys Scouts, 4H, FFA, neighborhood organizations
  • Homeschool parents
  • Church youth groups
  • In classroom teams as part of science curriculum

Once a team has been identified to participate in FIRST LEGO League Jr. the coach or team representative must go through the following steps:
