Welcome to the 2017 Maine FLL Program.
The Maine FIRST LEGO League season is upon us!
This year's theme, HydroDynamics, has predicted over 90 teams in Maine this year and about 700 children actively building and programming robots, while they also learn all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it.
It is going to be a banner year! Biggest ever and a great topic.
We need volunteers to help us run the events for 2017, and we're hoping you'll be able to help again this year. But even more, we're hoping some of you will sign up for a qualifier AND the State Championship. That's right, twice the fun.
We currently have 4 qualifiers, one qualifier scheduled for November 11th, 2017 at
And the State Championship will be on December 9th, 2017 at:
If you can't remember your password, just use the "I forgot my password" option.
For roles, you can select from the roles shown (can select several) or select "put me where needed"
You'll have to go through it twice to volunteer for a qualifier and the championship. Note, you can't volunteer at two events that are running at the same time.
The VIMS is part of the FIRST child protection program and requires that volunteers be screened and watch a youth protection program video. If you have never used VIMS before you will need to create an account. The process is not hard but there are a fair number of steps so if you run into trouble please feel free to contact us or check out the VIMS user guide.
Once you've logged in, you can select "Apply for an Event", then select "FLL", "USA", and "Maine" and hit "search for an event". You should see the 5 events listed below.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at (207)866-4340 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
