As a parent, the most important fact you need to know is that even if you are new to the FIRST program or if you are an incoming FLL or FTC member, you will be asked to help your child’s team. From helping with building robots and programming, to providing snacks, organizing spirit wear, and much more, there is a place for everyone in the program! Volunteering in FIRST is one of the most meaningful ways of connecting with our children and their friends, and it can foster long-term friendships with other families.
At the FLL Challenge level (grades 4th-5th), parental involvement is crucial. Keeping 8-10 students engaged takes work and requires more than just the coach. And speaking of coaching… we can’t have teams without coaches. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.
