Welcome to the 2018 Maine FLL Program.
The Maine FIRST LEGO League season is upon us!
This year's theme, Into Orbit, has predicted over 75 teams in Maine this year and about 500 children actively building and programming robots, while they also learn all about traveling in our solar system.
It is going to be a banner year! Biggest ever and a great topic.
We need volunteers to help us run the events for 2018, 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 10th, 2018 at
And the State Championship will be on December 8th, 2018 at:
Returning volunteers, 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.
