FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Showcase

Come see what our FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Teams have accomplished! They'll show off their research and the projects they've built using LEGO® technology! This year's challenge was Creature Craze® and our teams have built machines to help giraffes and bears continue to live in their natural habitats.

Please note that this is an exhibition, not a program where kids build with LEGO®. Parents interested in registering their children for FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. should look for next season's registration starting in August.
