Cost & Registration

FIRST LEGO League’s three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning centered around a yearly theme.

Registration is open for the 2020-2021 season. Costs for starting a FIRST LEGO League team vary depending on the division and level of participation. There are never any “per student” fees; all costs for individual team members are assumed by the team as a group.

FIRST believes all kids need equitable access to opportunity, relevant mentorship, and engagement to build a foundation for a bright future. We are available to assist teams in securing funding when extra help is needed. Registered teams also receive complimentary access to FIRST fundraising tools and resources to help teams create their own opportunities. Grants and sponsorships for teams may also be available provided locally, regionally, and nationally by many corporations.

We’re adding new opportunities for teams to get in the game this season and have a quality, flexible program experience, including teams who are in a fully remote environment.
