FIRST Lego League Jr Team - The Botcats

We recently helped start an FLLJr team in the town of Richmond.  FLLJr is a noncompetitive team activity for kids in grades K-4.  Teams are composed of 4-6 students and 2 adult coaches.  We are currently running this as a pilot group of 6 team members to get familiar with the structure of the program, and hope to support other groups in getting running for the Fall of 2020.  Teams meet between 6-12 sessions learning about the FIRST core values, and working on a special LEGO WeDo based project based on the theme of the year's game.  


We express the FIRST philosophies of Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition through our Core Values:

  • Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.

  • Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.

  • Impact:  We apply what we learn to improve our world.

  • Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.

  • Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.

  • Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!

It's easier to start a team than you think.  If you have a curious learner in this age group, please contact us to learn more about starting a group.  We would love to be able to locally host an Expo where the FLLJr kids can showcase their season's project and meet other teams!
