Message to Parents:

This is a non-profit program hosted by Ustar Education and MVRT/Homestead Robotics team.

FLL is the first step to the FIRST experience, as teams of middle school and elementary aged students embark on their FRC journey of building LEGO robots and taking those robots to competition to have a chance to go to championships. FLL gives a brief introduction to robotics, and allows the students to use both sensors and block programming to build robots that interact with their environment. FLL is a great experience for students that includes teamwork, leadership and is very fun! Students would attend competitions, workshops to build their skills, and meet 3 hours each week to work on their robot. 


  • Teams are expected to meet and work together once a week for 3 hours.
  • Ustar staff will monitor the students while the  MVRT/Homestead Robotics members and Ustar coach will educate and lead the students. 
  • Students will have the option to attend a FLL Workshop taught by MVRT/Homestead Robotics members or Ustar coach that will cover the skills needed to solve the challenge. 
  • Meetings will continue until each team completes its competitions
  • Qualifying registration competitions will occur in November
