How do I order LEGO products?
Log in to your Jr.FLL TIMS (aka registration) account. Click “Edit/View” next to your team name to go to the Team Summary page. If your Registration Status is showing “Registered/Paid,” you will be able to click "Order" in the next field down entitled “Order Materials.” This will redirect you to the LEGO Education website. Create your own Jr.FLL Store Password to enter the system and order your materials.
NOTE: You will only be able to order one of each kit for each team you register.

Can I purchase a Jr.FLL kit without registering a team?
Jr.FLL materials are only available to registered/paid teams. In order to purchase any of the kits, you must first register and pay for your Jr.FLL team. Jr.FLL Kits are not available for purchase anywhere else- they were made specifically for the Jr.FLL program.

What products and extra things should I budget for?
Many teams budget for LEGO products, Team t-shirts, Event Registration fees, travel costs, snacks for meetings, as well as supplies the team may use to make their Show Me poster.

What is the difference between the Jr.FLL Base Kit and Jr.FLL Robotics Kit?
The main difference between the Jr.FLL Base Kit and the Jr.FLL Robotics Kit is the ability for your team to experience the early stages of computer programming. This kit will allow your team to build various models and program them to move using software loaded onto a computer. It is important to keep in mind that if you choose to use the Robotics Kit, you will need to bring a computer to an Expo and attach it to your model in order to make your model move. The Robotics kit also does not have the large number of pieces the Base Kit does. It is a great addition for older teams who are looking for a way to start learning the programming process. The Jr.FLL Base Kit that we are recommending is a basic simple motorized mechanism kit that comes with pieces that will allow your team to build a model and use a motor to make a part of the model move.  Many teams buy an extra set of LEGO bricks to build a more robust model, but this is not necessary. It is really up to the coach and the team to decide on how elaborate they want to make their Model.
