What does FIRST® stand for?
For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
Base Kit Blues
The base kit and all its elements can seem very overwhelming, especially if you have never built anything out of LEGO® elements that has a motorized part. Don’t worry! Don’t fret! Help is here! Check out this video on building a motorized car. Our Coach Resources page gives tons of info on what to do with LEGO elements and simple machines. Also, your base kit includes the LSP Special Activities & Jr.FLL Guide that gives instructions on building both a motorized car and chair swing.
**For those that purchased the Base kit in a previous year or are not planning on purchasing a Base kit you can purchase the LSP 8 Pack & LSP Special Activities & Jr.FLL Guide separately from LEGO Education using the links found in the Team Information Management System where you registered your team. If you would like to purchase a Base kit it can be found using the links as well.
What is the greatest impact Jr.FLL has had on your team? Let us know!

***Please note that FIRST does not screen, select, or supervise coaches, mentors or students so it is not in a position to vouch for them. Use common sense and your judgment when selecting and interacting with the volunteers who will be working with your child.
