THANK YOU TO ALL who participated in the annual FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) Vermont State Championship, a “sports for the mind” robotics competition for 9- to 14-year-olds on Sunday, December 9, 2018. 

During the event, participating teams showcased the results of weeks of intense preparation as they demonstrated their teamwork skills, provided design briefings on their custom LEGO® robots, and shared their innovative solutions to real-world challenges connected to local and global communities. Prior to the event, registered teams designed, built, and programmed robots. At the event, they deployed their robots to complete thematic challenges during timed matches.

Events were scheduled throughout the day:

  • Pre-registered team arrival | 8 a.m.
  • Opening remarks | 9 a.m.
  • Judged events start | 9:40 a.m.
  • Robot matches start | 1 p.m.
  • Robot matches conclude | 3:30 p.m. (approximately)
  • Awards ceremony | 4:15 p.m. (approximately)

Spectators also had the opportunity to see demos from Vermont high school robotics teams at the competition. Additionally, Norwich University STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) demonstrations were on display throughout the event.
