Jr.FLL Update-Brain Buster, Name Game, Team Materials, Events

Coaches:

Brain Buster

How many different programs does FIRST® have and what are the recommended participation ages?

A- There are 4 different programs.  FRC® & FTC® for 14-18 yr. olds, FLL® for 9-14 yr. olds, and Jr.FLL® for 6-9 yr. olds.

Name Game

Having trouble getting your team to settle on their name?  Use the decision making process as a team building exercise.  How?  Have them all write down their favorite snacks and see which ones they have in common.  Or, use LEGO SERIOUS® PLAY™ mini-kits and have each team member come up with a name & model and explain to the group why they think it should be the team name.

*****PLEASE NOTE:  Jr.FLL Base kit (which includes LSP activities) and LSP 8 Pack & LSP Special Actives are optional and can be purchased through LEGO® Education via the link on your registration page.  Interested in buying LEGO materials for your team, but are not sure what is right?  Check out all of your options here. *****
