–>Jr.FLL(R) Online Showcase – Launch of New Site
We are very excited to announce a new addition to the Jr.FLL program: The Jr.FLL Online Showcase!
The Jr.FLL Online Showcase is the newest way for registered Jr.FLL teams to share the work they are doing this season. On the Online Showcase, coaches create a profile, upload team pictures, and then, with the team, search for other teams around the world and award them virtual stickers for a job well done. It’s an awesome way for teams to connect with each other! Check it out:http://jrfllshowcase.usfirst.org
–>FLL(R) Global Innovation Coach Call – Monday, November 12th, 7pm ET
–>”We are so all in that we’re buying a bigger house!” …from FLL Parent Page
Our latest article features the first appearance of “Flip: The FLL Robot.” In this fun and informative comic, Flip learns how FLL parents “keep up” with their kids. You’ll also find a new article on how some parents are “expanding” to accommodate their child’s participation in FLL. The Parent Page provides creative ideas, fun tips, and support throughout the season so parents are able to keep up with their FLL kid.

–>New Lower Bulb Pricing for Fundraising
More great news, teams! To help make it easier than ever before to raise team funds from our ongoing FIRST Green e-watt saver light bulb program, FIRST is announcing NEW PRICING on the 800-lumen bulb — now just $8.50 per bulb, or $204 per case! That’s a price drop of over 40%! PLUS…we’ve lowered the retail sales price to just $20! That means your team profit remains unchanged ($11.50 per bulb minus shipping), but you can attract more customers with this new, lower price. This is a great opportunity to reach new customers while reconnecting with people who declined to buy at the higher price point. Everybody loves a bargain, so take advantage of this new pricing by stocking up today and getting out there with the good news!
