FIRSTLego Type WhiteFIRST LEGO League gives elementary and middle school students and their adult Coaches the opportunity to work and create together to solve a common problem. Challenged to research a real-world problem, then create an original solution for that problem, plus design and build a robot using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® kit within a common set of rules to accomplish “missions” on a playing field, brings out the best in students and adults alike.

AMSTI Grant New Deadline

For those following the AMSTI Grant, the deadline to apply has been pushed back to September 30. If you plan on using the grant for FLL or FLL Jr., make sure you're paying attention to what it can be used for, when the money would be available, and when you would need to purchase items. It might be a good idea to use the AMSTI grant toward things you would like to use next year rather than this year, given the timeline.
