FIRST LEGO® League
Explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math!
Do you like to build things? Do you like new challenges? Girls age nine to 14 are invited to join an all-girl team to build a robot and compete in the FIRST LEGO® League (FLL)!
We support up to 15 (volunteer-led) teams of girls who build, test and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NEXT to solve the year’s LEGO® challenge. Throughout the experience, teams will operate under the FLL’s signature set of core values and the principles of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, including the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Girl Scouts of Western Washington will provide each team the following materials:
- FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) team registration fee
- Washington State Regional Competition fee
- Use of one laptop with MINDSTORMS® software
- Use of one MINDSTORMS® robotic kit with rechargeable battery
- Materials for one 4’x8’ regulation FLL table
- Use of one challenge kit, including: mat, mission pieces, color instructions
- Custom team T-Shirts
- Volunteer preparation and ongoing support
Each team decides their meeting location and times, with the series beginning in August and ending with regional competition events in January. Team formation and registration opens in June and ends in October. Cost is $125 per girl, and financial assistance or Cookie Dough may be used.
