We can’t wait for you to join us for CITY SHAPERSM!
To help you get started, we’ve put together everything you need to know about coaching a team.
Assemble Your Team: You’ll need two or more committed adult mentors to guide your team of up to 10 students as they work together designing, building, and programming their robot.
Program Cost: You can start your team for around $750, which includes your team’s FIRST® LEGO® League Season Registration ($225) and CITY SHAPERSM Challenge Set ($75) and your choice of a LEGO® Education SPIKETM Prime ($410) or LEGO® MINDSTORMS® ($496) robotics set.
West TN FLL charges an additional $75 Regional Activity fee that pays for your team to participate in a Qualifier Tournament. There is no additional fee for teams advancing to the West TN Championship (thanks to the University of Memphis).
Your CITY SHAPER Challenge Set includes an exclusive selection of LEGO® models that illustrate real-world problems your team will create their robot to solve.
Review Your Resources: Regardless of your technical experience, our resources are here to help guide you through your first year. FIRST LEGO League team members are encouraged to bring any skills they have and a passion for learning and exploration – that goes for students and coaches!
- Team Management Resources from coaching tips to FIRST LEGO League Table Building Instructions
- Programming and robot building
- Team Meeting Guides and enough Engineering Notebooks for each student to record their ideas and track their progress (included with season registration)
- Exclusive CITY SHAPER graphics
