Overview - What is Involved?

FIRST LEGO League is an exciting after-school program for students ages 9-14.  This manual describes Central Valley Robotics' implementation of FIRST LEGO League in the Central California Area.    A FIRST LEGO League team needs a room to practice, coaches to help guide the team, and students to learn and have fun!

titleTeam Organization and Finances

Teams are typically run in conjunction with a school or other after school organization, however teams do not need to be associated with a school to participate.

First year teams should expect about $1000 in costs (annual + one time costs), which include the EV3 MINDSTORMS kit (Any version can be used if already purchased). Returning teams only need to worry about $500 in annual costs (registration fees, materials, event fees, etc).

titleTime Commitment

The FIRST LEGO League Season in Central California starts with the Challenge Release on August 1st, and wraps up with the Central California Championship in mid-December. Teams typically start meeting August, and they continue to meet until they attend a Qualifier starting in November. If teams are selected to more on, they will keep on meeting until the championship in December. We also encourage teams to host a celebration after their final event to wrap up the season!

The Season Standards Manual

The remaining sections are dedicated to guiding a team through the various activities to ensure successful participation on FIRST LEGO League.   The sections are intended to be read in order and are split between pre-event preparation, and event day activities.

Info

This manual combines multiple documents from FIRST with local information to our region. We have designed this manual to be a one-stop-shop for all teams in the area. Teams do not need to worry about reading FIRST documentation (Event Guide, Coaches Handbook, etc), unless otherwise noted in the manual.
