GEAR-Tech-21 and FIRST LEGO League can go together in many ways. Junior FIRST LEGO League (Jr. FLL) is a program for K-3 grade students and is a wonderful introduction to robotics. In Jr. FLL students will get to explore the world of legos and begin working with a working part. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is the FIRST robotics program for 3-7th graders (maxium age is 14) and shows youth how science is fun and can be applied to real life solutions. FLL teams may use the GEAR-Tech-21 curriculum activities to prepare for the season. GEAR-Tech-21 clubs can participate in the FLL for as an outlet to show off their robotics knowlege and compete against other teams. Our final program is FIRST Tech Challenge for 7th-12 grade students who have graduated out of FLL and want to continue their work with robotics.
