FIRST® LEGO® League offers a wonderful opportunity for hands on learning, research, and development of original ideas. The first step for families interested in getting their children involved is to look for teams in their area, and to be prepared to help start a new team.
Identifying Teams in Your Area
For privacy reasons set forth by FIRST®, Georgia Tech® cannot release team contact information.
If your school has a team, you will need to find out how students are selected. FIRST® LEGO® League limits teams to ten students, so some teams have lotteries, some rely on teacher recommendations, and some have try outs.
You can also look on our GA Support Facebook group to see if any teams in your area are taking member or you can post asking if there are any looking for members. To visit this page click here https://www.facebook.com/groups/GAFLL/
Work with a Teacher to Get a Team Started
If your school does not yet have a team, a teacher may be interested in starting one. The prospect of starting a new team can be daunting, but the help of a parent or guardian can provide the additional support the school needs to get started. A little help can go a long way!
FIRST® LEGO® League outside of Schools
FIRST® LEGO® League is not limited to school-based teams. Neighborhood associations, community centers, churches and scout troops organize teams. Don’t be afraid to explore other options, and to find ways to start a FIRST® LEGO® League team in your neighborhood, organization or community center.
