I can’t find a FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge team near me. Can I start one?
Absolutely, the easiest way to join a FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge program is to start your own team. Ask your principal if your school has a team; if not, encourage your principal to identify a teacher who would be willing to start a team with your help as a team volunteer. Please let your principal know that FIRST® is a collaborative partnership with private industry professionals and educators to inspire young people towards STEM.
If a school-based team is not a possibility, you may find another youth-focused organization that can help. Scouts, 4-H, and other clubs may also support FIRST® teams.
Teams are also formed by neighborhood groups, or groups of friends with children of a similar age. There are no restrictions on who can start a team!
