FIRST Lego League Junior
For League teams, we will need at least one parent to be present anytime the team is scheduled to meet and work on their project. We will also have an OLA teacher present at one session each week, and there will be mentors from Boeing and other sponsoring companies to help the kids prepare for the competitions.
The teams are encouraged to meet and work together on their project over the Fall at times in addition to the weekly meeting with the other teams.
