 Jr.FLL Online Showcase

The Online Showcase is just about ready for launch! We are very excited about the newest addition to the Jr.FLL program. It is going to be a great way to share your team’s work with everyone and connect with other Jr.FLL teams from around the world!! Watch your email for more information on the launch of the website and how to access it.

World Festival Expo

It is never too early to start thinking about this season’s World Festival Expo!  The Expo will once again take place in St. Louis in April.  Talk to your team now.  If you’re interested in attending this year the application will be posted on the Jr.FLL website in October.  Teams are chosen to attend via lottery, so all interested teams are encouraged to apply. Don’t know what the World Festival Expo is?  Learn about it here, and don’t forget to check out the pictures from last year!
