Unofficial (Community) Events

Community events are organized by YOU and hosted by your community. Since they are unofficial events, they can follow any format. Schools, libraries, museums, parks, gym, and arenas all make great venues for community events.

At some community events, teams get together and play a few rounds of the Robot Game using their own Challenge Sets (formerly known as Field Setup Kits). At others, teams display their Projects in a science fair-like atmosphere and invite influencers within their community to come see their proposed solutions. Teams do not have to be judged and receive awards at community events - but they can! Many community events hand out certificates in lieu of trophies. But if you’re able to raise money to have trophies, you can purchase them locally.

Have fun engaging another team in some practice, showing parents your Project and robot, or demonstrating the FIRST LEGO League Challenge in your community.
