Start a Team

Steps to Forming a FIRST  LEGO League Jr. Team

  1. Form a team of 2-6 youth, ages 6-10, and at least one coach.
  2. Register with FIRST as a FIRST LEGO League Jr.  team. Registration is open from August through May each year.
  3. Research a topic, create a poster presenting that research, build a LEGO model with at least one motorized part that addresses the topic researched, and present what they have learned to a reviewer in a non-competitive, fun, high-energy environment.
  4. UNL Extension 4-H Youth Development will host a FIRST LEGO League Jr. Showcase. See the Nebraska FIRST Robotics Schedule for the location, date, time, and cost of this year's Showcase.
