Have you heard of FLL?
FIRST LEGO League introduces students in Grades 4-8 to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FIRST LEGO League teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.
We are off to another great season of FIRST LEGO League in Nebraska! This year’s challenge takes the game to another level with ANIMAL ALLIES. Get ready. Get set. Roar! Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIES season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends. In the 2016 FIRST LEGO League Challenge, more than 28,000 teams of students age 9 to 14 will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIES.
So are you interested? Because we would love to have you volunteer for one of our events! I have attached a volunteer role description document for you to review to see where you just might fit best!

Please consider registering as a volunteer:
All volunteers MUST register with FIRST via the Volunteer Information Management System (VIMS)
As part of the FIRST Youth Protection Program, volunteers will be screened with a background check. Please note: You do not need to provide your SSN nor pay the $2.50. Once you log into VIMS, you will be able to indicate the event you are able to attend as well as you preferred volunteer position(s).
FIRST, and specifically FLL in Nebraska, is successful because of the wonderful volunteers at these events. We could not provide this experience for these students without the dedication from amazing people like you. We are ALWAYS looking for new volunteers so spread the word!
