Welcome to the 2016 Maine FLL Program.
The Maine FIRST LEGO League season is upon us!
This year's theme, Animal Allies, has predicted over 90 teams in Maine this year and about 700 children actively building and programming robots, while they also research about exploring the relationship between people and animals.
It is going to be a banner year! Biggest ever and a great topic.
We need volunteers to help us run the events for 2016, 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 have 4 Qualifiers, all scheduled for November 19th, 2016 at:
Registering for being a volunteer is the same as last year, just visit:
and use the same email to login as last year. If your email has changed or you can't remember any of your login information... you can either contact FIRST or start a new entry.
If you can't remember your password, just use the "I forgot my password" option.
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 4/5 events listed below.
Please select the qualifier and/or state championship.
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 qualifiers as they are all 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.

Note: We have been informed that IPads, tablets, and smartphones sometimes have trouble with VIMS, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer to register.
