Events

Junior FIRST® LEGO®League (Jr.FLL®) events provide an opportunity for Jr.FLL teams to showcase their accomplishments. They offer the opportunity to share projects with other teams and to learn from each other. A Jr.FLL event can be as simple as a meeting of your team, team families, and friends to share what they learned or, depending on your resources, it may include 30 or more teams sharing in a public venue.

Each Jr.FLL event recognizes the contributions of each participant and each team, and provides a venue for positive sharing, learning, laughing, and celebrating a task well done!

Frequently Asked Questions About Events

Is there an event in my area?
We make every effort to post all events that we know about. Search for an event in your area.

How much do events cost?
The cost of events varies. The cost to register for an event is determined by the event organizer, as events are coordinated on the local level. The typical cost for registration for a Jr.FLL event is between $20 and $50. This is just an estimate and can vary above and below these amounts. Please check with the person organizing the event in your area to find out how to register, and how much registration is for the event.

Do we have to go to an event?
No, you are not required to attend an event. However, going to an event allows you to see what other teams have done, gives you the chance to collaborate with other coaches and celebrates what everyone has learned through their experiences with the Jr.FLL program.

What can I expect at a typical Jr.FLL Event or Expo?
Jr.FLL events provide an opportunity for Jr.FLL teams to showcase their work and meet other kids who share their interest in science and technology.  A Jr.FLL event can be as simple as a meeting of your team, team families, and friends to share what they learned. It could be as small as one or two teams meeting in someone's living room, or as large as 30 or more teams sharing in a public venue.
At larger Jr.FLL Expos run by Affiliate Partners, Volunteer Reviewers visit with each team to learn about their LEGO model, Show Me poster and ask questions about their research.  This experience allows children to practice presentation skills in a non-competitive environment.  During the closing ceremony for the Expo everyone receives a certificate of participation.  Everyone wins!
