A fun, non-competitive program for students K-3 (ages 6-9) that introduces concepts of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) around an annual theme. Teams research the current Challenge theme, design and build a LEGO model with both a simple machine and a motorized part, and display their work on a Show Me poster. As in all FIRST programs, the Core Values of teamwork, discovery, and having fun are included in the experience of the team.

As a Reviewer you will come to an Expo and work as a pair of Reviewers to interview up to 4 teams in 15 minute windows. Teams have prepared a moving model and a Show Me poster to explain the research they’ve done. After the interviews all of the Reviewers work together to distribute awards to all of the teams.

Teams have unscheduled time at the Expo and Team Activities Leaders help to provide structured and fun activities for them. High Tech Kids will provide activities including coloring, a robot activity, and more. Additional activity ideas welcome! This is a great opportunity for an experienced FLL or FTC team looking for outreach activities.

When Expos take place at an FLL event teams have the opportunity to see what is expected of them at the next level of competition. We are always looking for teams and individuals who already have an extensive knowledge of FLL to help as Team Escorts to lead FLL Jr teams through what they can expect from judging, performance, and preparation before the event.
