Junior FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL)
The Jr. FIRST LEGO League is for ages 6 to 9, made up of a team of 2 to 6 members, the season is from June to May. This Jr. FLL program is available in Canada, Belgium, Israel, the Netherlands and the U.S.
The schedule for Jr.FLL is very flexible. It is up to the pace of each team. Team may meet once a week (about 1-2 hours each) for about 6-10 weeks. Then participate in one of the Jr.FLL Expos to show their work and have fun in a non-competitive event with other Jr.FLL teams.
There is no hard deadline to start or end the team season, as long as it is somewhere between June to April. You may need to target which Expo your team wants to participate and plan the team meetings accordingly. The earliest NJ Jr. FLL Expo is the State event held on the 2nd weekend of December. There is a spring Expo in south Jersey happening in March, and the last Expo in the season is usually the LRC Jr.FLL Expo in Livingston which is held on the Memorial Weekend Saturday. Dates and events are subject to change from year to year.
See FIRST website for the list of Expos (make sure the Junior FIRST LEGO League and Events boxes are checked for the State selected).
