Registration and Funding Opportunities for FIRST LEGO League
by Stefanie Sieber
In the world of FIRST LEGO League, there is a flurry of activity! Here are the current registration numbers for our programs:
- FIRST LEGO League Explore (6 - 10 years): 53 classes and 165 teams.
- FIRST LEGO League Challenge (9 - 16 years): 401 classes and 632 teams across 63 regions.
Many teams are benefiting from funding we have set up with ministries and companies. The continued support from the Hessian Ministry of Education enables over 90% of registered Challenge classes in Hesse to conduct the project in the classroom and participate in regional competitions. We also extend our gratitude to our fantastic partners, including Dow, John Deere, Motorola, Novelis, PostCode Lotterie, and Sage, for their generous support. Your support and involvement are crucial as we collectively shape the future of the next generation of technology enthusiasts and creative minds!
For those who have not yet registered, anything is still possible: there are still available spots in some regions, which you can register for here. The registration for "Challenge" is open until the end of October, and for "Explore," you can sign up up to 4 weeks before the final exhibition. Currently, several funding opportunities are available for "Explore" and "Challenge" teams and classes. Visit our educational program's funding website and contact our colleague Kristina to learn more about the current possibilities for your team or class.
