Children ages 6-10 are invited to enroll in the West Lafayette Public Library's FIRST LEGO League teams for the Fall of 2018! 

FLL Jr. is an elementary STEM program meant to facilitate the building of teamwork, leadership, communication, and critical thinking skills at a young age. Teams work together to create a project inspired by this year's theme of Mission Moon and then present their project to a group of judges at science fair-like events called Expos.

Information about FIRST Lego League Jr. can be found here: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr/team-basics

Meetings are from 4:00 - 5:00 PM on Fridays from Sept. 28 through Nov 16th. Attendance is required to compete as part of the team at the Expo.

For registration, more information, and who to contact with questions, please visit our registration page.

Spots on our team are limited, but the number of teams is infinite as long as there are interested adults! Consider checking out our Information Session on September 16 to see how to start your own team!
