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, however our robot game release and Panel of Experts are for team members too! That said,  ALL team members must be supervised by an adult.  FLL Jr. workshop is for both parents and children. 
  • What is the “Panel of Experts”?
    • The panel of experts will include organizations or individuals whose work focuses on the topic of the current season. It is geared toward FLL and FLL Jr. teams that are working on their research for their projects but it is open to EVERYONE including members of the public.
  • What workshops will be offered? Do I need to sign up for each?
    • We do not have any workshops this year that require pre-registration.
  • Who do I contact to learn more about each program?
