Children ages 6-10 are invited to enroll in the West Lafayette Public Library's FIRST LEGO League teams for the Fall of 2018! 

FLL Jr. is an elementary STEM program meant to facilitate the building of teamwork, leadership, communication, and critical thinking skills at a young age. Teams work together to create a project inspired by this year's theme of Mission Moon and then present their project to a group of judges at science fair-like events called Expos.

Information about FIRST Lego League Jr. can be found here: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr/team-basics

Meetings are from 4:00 - 5:00 PM on Fridays from Sept. 28 through Nov 16th. Attendance is required to compete as part of the team at the Expo.

For registration, more information, and who to contact with questions, please visit our registration page.

Spots on our team are limited, but the number of teams is infinite as long as there are interested adults! Consider checking out our Information Session on September 16 to see how to start your own team!

Do you love playing board games, making up rules for others to follow, or just making sure everyone is having a good time? Consider signing up for our fall Game Design "camps" for elementary and high school students! 

Participants will play games, build their own, and then present their games at a wrap-up party.

The 9-session program runs on Wednesdays, September 19th through November 14th. 

Elementary students ages 7-12 attend 4:30-5:45. Sign up here!

High school students ages 13-18 attend 6:00 - 7:30. Sign up here!

Because there are a limited number of spots and each session is meant to build off the last, attendees should be able to attend most sessions to get the most out of the program.
