As of 9/2/2013 we have 25 teams registered in Maine and we know of many more that will be coming on soon. DON"T WAIT! Remember the season closes as soon as the National Registration slots are all taken.
We've also posted 6 new videos on the FLL web page that talk about starting up a FIRST LEGO League team, we recommend you take the time to watch these as they answer many of the questions we hear from new coaches and parents.

In 1980 the Human Powered Helicopter (HPH) Competition was announced and on June 13th, 2013 the AeroVelo, Inc. helicopter met the design and performance specifications and on July 11th was awarded the $250,000 prize! The HPH had to remain aloft for 60 seconds; reach a height of 3 meters; and hover over a 10 m x 10 m space. Watch the video and try to image that the entire helicopter only weighs 115 pounds!
