LEGO League Jr. Registration Open
Students in 5K through 3rd grade and parent coaches can register for the 2018-19 LEGO League Jr. season now through Nov. 2. The registration fee is $20. Click here for information about how to register. Teams will be announced in early December. The coach determines the meeting day, time, and location. Your child’s coach will contact you in December to find a day/time that works for the team. If your child can’t attend on the chosen day/time, we will make every effort to move your child to another team.

FIRST LEGO League Jr. is an international program for children in 5K - 3rd grade. It's hands-on and engages children through experimentation and a culture of sharing and learning from others. It goes beyond just “playing with LEGOs”.  After a 12-week season that includes research, building and computer programming, teams have the opportunity to showcase their project at the Grafton LEGO Expo on April 6. 

Grafton also has several FIRST LEGO League teams for students in 4th - 8th grade. The season starts in August and ends in November. Registration for the 2019-20 season will start in May 2019.
