FIRST LEGO League Junior (FLL Jr.) teams (students ages 6 – 10 or grades K – 4) coaches, mentors and parents are cordially invited to the FREE, 2nd annual Quad Cities FLL Jr. season Kickoff!  Teams will benefit from interactive table topics, learn how to plan a season, see what comes in the Inspire Set, get a glimpse of WeDo 2.0 programming in action and more. Come learn more about the all new, MISSION MOON season  which you and your team will transport to a place where you make the rules, learn to thrive in a new environment, and explore all that is around you.  

Come to the Putnam where you will have opportunity to interact with space professionals supporting the new challenge and learn about the FIRST progression of programs for students in grades K-12 with FIRST LEGO League Junior, FIRST LEGO League (grades 4-8), FIRST Tech Challenge (grades 7-12) and FIRST Robotics Competition (grades 9-12).  

The event will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 10:10 AM to 12:05 PM and is free of charge through the gracious hosting by the Putnam Museum & Science Center.

Please note that the 6th Annual FIRST LEGO League (students age 9-14) Kickoff will be held in parallel starting earlier in the day.
