FLL Tips & Tricks Number 2: Registering Your FLL team in the National Challenge

#edchat #edtech #elemchat I get started on my First LEGO League (FLL) team at the beginning of August every year. My information stays on the FLL website, but if you are just getting started you will have to enter your information for your team when you register with the national FLL website.

To get started just go to http://www.usfirst.org and click on the FLL Registration link. You will use your email address as your username and a password that you create. To go directly to the login page just bookmark this website: https://gofll.usfirst.org Since my school doesn't start until mid August, I need to take a bit of a risk and register a team before I even have a team because it is important for me to have a field kit (the mat and props for the annual challenges) here at my school for the first day of school so that we can start with FLL as soon as the school starts. So you will need to register one team and order one field kit.

We usually have three teams at my school, so I register the other teams after we get them organized around the 20th of August. One way that we save money is that we share one field kit. This is possible because each team meets on a different day.

It usually only takes a week to get the field kit.
