FIRST LEGO League (4th – 8th grade) 10:15 a.m.–Noon
If you’d like to understand what’s required to start a team at your school, youth organization, or neighborhood group, this is the workshop for you! This also is a great opportunity for Rookie Teams, Rookie Coaches and Mentors, and young teams to learn and ask questions.

Please note that this seminar does not replace the Coaches’ Workshops for registered FIRST LEGO League teams. The September workshop includes detailed information about the new challenge, building and programming the robot, and judging.
