Overview - What is Involved?

FIRST LEGO League Jr. is an exciting after-school program for students grades K-4; ages 6-10.  This manual describes Central Valley Robotics' implementation of FIRST LEGO League Jr.  in the Central California Area.    A FIRST LEGO League Jr. team needs a room to meet, coaches to help guide the team, and students to learn, get inspired 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 $300-$400 in costs (annual + one time costs), which includes the LEGO WeDo set (this can be reused in the future seasons). Returning teams should expect to spend about $100-$200 in annual costs (registration fees, materials, event fees, etc).

titleTime Commitment

The FIRST LEGO League Jr. Season in Central California starts with the Challenge Release on August 1st. The event season for FIRST LEGO League Jr. runs from October to June of the following year and includes a number of expo events including the Central California Championship expo in mid-December. Registration for this program begins in May and closes in March of the following year. Teams typically start meeting after registration, follows the meeting schedule and prepare for participating in an expo event. A team can register to participate in one or more expo events during the event season. We encourage teams to host a celebration after their final expo event to wrap up the season!
