Quad Cities’ FIRST LEGO League teams from Iowa and Illinois including students, coaches and mentors are cordially invited to attend the FREE, 7th Annual FIRST LEGO League Kickoff. Please note there is also a parallel, FIRST LEGO League Junior Kickoff.  Here is a link with further info.

The Kickoff provides a fun, interactive way to meet other teams, learn together and share key FIRST LEGO League information.  This includes opportunities to talk with Innovation Project Challenge experts about buildings and public spaces in your community.  In addition, you can learn from experienced FIRST LEGO League judges and referees about the new CITY SHAPER field setup.  Several returning FIRST LEGO League teams will be on hand to share their State Championship and/or FIRST World Championship experiences.

The event will be hosted at the John Deere World Headquarters in Moline, Illinois which also hosts the annual Quad Cities – Moline FIRST LEGO League Green & Yellow qualifiers & FIRST Tech Challenge Kickoff, and a summer FIRST LEGO League Junior Expo.    As a new global sponsor for FIRST LEGO League for the 2019 – 2020 CITY SHAPER season, John Deere is excited to host the Kickoff!

To help ensure there is adequate space and materials, all FIRST LEGO League teams (students, coaches, mentors and parents), event volunteers, and people supporting Kickoff displays must pre-register and provide signed consent forms. Forms can be found at http://qcesc.org/quad-cities-first-LEGO-league-teamkickoff/.
