Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can team members attend workshops?
    • That depends on the program. For FRC and FTC (middle and high school), team members are invited and encouraged to attend workshops. For FLL (upper elementary and middle school), workshops are geared toward coaches and mentors, but older, more mature members with at least one year experience may find them useful as well. That said,  ALL team members must be supervised by an adult. We also ask that you keep in mind the limited amount of space in each workshop. The more members that attend from one team, the less space is available for other teams. For Jr FLL, workshops are for coaches and mentors only.
  • What is the “Panel of Experts”?
    • The panel of experts will include organizations or individuals whose work focuses on animals. It is geared toward FLL and Jr FLL teams that are working on their Animal Allies and Creature Craze research but it is open to EVERYONE including members of the public.
  • What workshops will be offered? Do I need to sign up for each?
    • The list of workshops will be released once finalized. As of right now, only two workshops will require separate registrations- FLL Intro to EV3 Programming and FLL Advanced EV3 Programming.
  • Who do I contact to learn more about each program?
