F.I.R.S.T. EXPANSION
Our goal is to give the opportunity of STEM education to everyone, despite grade level and socio-economic situation. To do this, we created the F.I.R.S.T Expansion Program, helping school districts implement robotics into all grade levels. 
F.I.R.S.T. Lego League Jr.
First Lego League Jr. (FLL Jr.)  is a FIRST robotics program for kids in Kindergarten through 4th grade. FIRST Lego League Jr. Challenges kids to construct models and conduct small projects related to a specific theme This is an introductory program to STEM that appeals to kids through LEGO-building. 
 
We have yet to start or mentor any FIRST Lego League Jr. team, but have plans in the near future to do so!
 
If you would like our help in starting an FLL Jr. team or have questions, don't be afraid to send us a message!
F.I.R.S.T. Lego League
First Lego League (FLL) is a FIRST robotics program for kids in 4th to 8th grade. The kids are challenged to build a fully autonomous LEGO Mindstorms robot and conduct a research project regarding a real-world issue pertaining to the given theme.  
Our team began helping to create FLL teams in 2015 at Newcastle Elementary school. Every year since we have helped additional FLL teams to fruition and other FRC teams who are looking to start their own FLL teams. To date, we have started 37 teams and plan for more!  
If you would like our help in starting an FLL team or have questions, don't be afraid to send us a message!
