FLL is a hands on competition for students in 4th-8th grades. The competition itself is composed of four parts: Core Values, Robot Design, the Challenge Project, and Robot Performance.
The LegoDogs division runs from September through December, January, or April based on the level of competition the team achieves. Every LegoDogs team attends a qualifying event in Illinois in December. The qualifiers are on Saturdays or Sundays over the weekends preceding Christmas. If a team scores in approximately the overall top 25% of the teams in attendance at their qualifier, they proceed to a State Championship Tournament which take place in mid-January. At the State Championship, the overall top team earns the Champion’s Award and potentially a spot to the World Festival in April.
Registration for the 2019-2020 season is closed.
Member fee for this division is $275.00.
The division is capped at 112 students. Registration will close when the limit is reached, or if it's not reached, it will close on September 10th to allow time to prepare for the season. Registration and payment are required to attend the Kickoff on September 7th.
