LEGO Teams Forming

We have enough folks now to form LEGO teams for Mondays and Wednesdays. But those teams still have a few slots available.  With one more registration we will form a homeschool team too! It will meet from 12:30 to 2:30 on Tuesdays. The Monday team is using the current NXT system, and joining costs $175. The Wednesday team and homeschool teams are using the new EV3 system. The fee for these teams are $200 per child. Your fee covers the team registration, t-shirts for each team member, the regional competition, acquiring the robotics system for the team, the coach and meeting facility, and $25 per team for materials for the presentation portion of the competition. Whew!

Join now! We have a few slots left. Call 256-705-GEAR (4327) to register or come by the lab. You’ll find us hard at work completing our project table!

    what ages can join a team, and are there other requirements?

  • Rob Adams

    Ages 9-14 are required. No other requirements other than a team spirit and an ability to meet once a week with their team.

    I am just now seeing this announcement for Lego teams. Is is too late for my 9 yr. old to join a team?

    Lee Ann,

    I’m afraid our teams are all full. But we can put you on our waitlist.

    Bummer! 🙁 Do you only do it once a year?

    Lee Ann,

    I’m afraid the FLL only competes in the fall. We can put you on our waiting list. And you should see if your school is fielding a team.
