Turning “look at me” into “look at US!” The FIRST LEGO League Jr. season culminates with Expos where teams show off what they learned and created. Some teams are invited to showcase their work at the FIRST LEGO League Jr. World Festival Expo held in St. Louis, where teams from all over the world meet, share ideas, and have fun.
Events offer students an amazing experience as they celebrate their hard work, have fun, make new friendships, and are exposed to ideas and ideology that will enhance their lives for decades to come.
FIRST LEGO League Jr. team members and adult Coaches and Volunteers all agree – season-ending events (Expos and FIRST LEGO League Jr. World Festival Expos) are the most amazing, inspiring experiences they’ve ever had. Where else can you make new friends, share ideas, watch older kids compete with robots, and get pumped up over technology all while having the time of your lives? Kids realize more than ever that FIRST is all about teamwork, sharing, helping others, and respect. Due to the non-competitive nature of the program in FIRST LEGO League Jr. students may attend more than one season-event depending on the events scheduled in their area.
