 First Lego League

The FIRST LEGO League tournament will be held on our campus on Sunday, December 9 at the Maurice Stokes Athletic Center/DeGol Arena at Saint Francis University.  Doors open at 12:00 PM.  Competition begins at 1:00 PM. This international tournament for students in grades 4-8  is designed as an introduction to the NXT LEGO Mindstorm Robot kit. It is free to attend and see firsthand the students' creations using the theme "Senior Solutions."

So far we have 15 teams registered (with 10 students per team!) If you are looking to help these students, we are seeking volunteers and financial assistance for teams to participate.

We are currently looking to fill the following volunteer roles for the Championship.  Inquiries should be directed to ScienceOutreach@francis.edu or 814-472-3878 or complete the volunteer registration form.

You may also participate as an event sponsor. Please contact scienceoutreach@francis.edu with sponsorship questions.
