2022-23 FIRST LEGO League Challenge State Championship Registration
This survey is for nationally registered FIRST LEGO League Challenge teams in Louisiana who are not able to participate in Qualifying Tournaments in December 2021 due to delays in starting back to school following Hurricane Ida. There are several opportunities being proposed, and we would like your feedback on them. This survey will help us gauge interest before moving forward with planning.
LA FIRST LEGO League Challenge State Championship, January 22nd – A limited number of open spots may be available by invitation only to teams that were not able to participate in December qualifiers. (All teams participating in December qualifiers will be invited to advance to the Championship.)
LA FIRST LEGO League Challenge Off-Season Competition – There is potential for an off-season, in-person competition in May or early June.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY BELOW BY NOVEMBER 30TH, 2021, TO INDICATE YOUR TEAM’S INTEREST IN PARTICIPATING IN THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP OR AN OFF-SEASON COMPETITION IN MAY OR JUNE.
This survey is only an indication of interest, not a reservation or commitment.
2021 LA FIRST LEGO League Survey
If you believe there has been an error in the scoring of your Robot Game Video, please complete the form below and a referee will get in touch with you.
UPDATED POLICY (1/21/22): Because of FIRST Youth Protection protocols regarding youth privacy and one-on-one digital communication, we ask that only adults use this form to communicate with the referees. We realize that at in-person events, students communicate directly with referees at the end of the match, but for remote events, please have an adult coach submit the communication. And please identify only one point of contact for your team, as multiple people sending in comments from one team creates confusion. We appreciate your understanding.
FIRST LEGO League Referee Consultation
Teams are required to provide 3 Robot Game Videos by
5pm on Thursday, January 20th.
Please refer to the instructions below provided by FIRST for producing your videos.
- Robot Game Video Recording Tutorial – on YouTube
To share your videos, please upload them to the platform of your choice and provide links to your videos by completing the online form below.
Any platform where you can post your videos and make them accessible to the referees is good. A shared school Google folder works, but an easy alternative is to upload your videos to YouTube using a designation of RESTRICTED (instructions provided here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtF2AgFSLAw&feature=emb_logo). Making it restricted means that the only way someone can find your video is if they have the link. It is not searchable, so it is not public.
Questions may be addressed to Annette Oertling, co-FLL Partner.
FIRST LEGO League Official Match Video Submission
For submission of 3 LA FLL Official Robot Match Videos.
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Teams are invited to provide a demonstration at the 2020 FIRST Robotics Competition Bayou Regional on Friday and Saturday, March 27 & 28, at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner LA. There will be a FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge display, and we are looking for teams to sign up for 1-2 hour time slots on Friday between 10am-6pm and Saturday between 10am-1pm to demonstrate their robot and talk to visitors about their experience in FIRST. You would need to bring only your robot, as FLL and FTC fields will be provided. FLL teams may also bring project and core values materials to show.
While at the Bayou Regional, FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge teams are invited to visit the “pits” where team members work on their 120 lb robots, and enjoy the matches on the field where alliances of 3 teams compete against each other in the INFINITE RECHARGESM game focused on supporting boundless innovation and creating a society that’s empowered, inspired, and hopeful. Stay for the very exciting final rounds on Saturday afternoon. 60 teams are expected in the competition, including teams from Mexico and Turkey! It is a great opportunity to see where FIRST can take you.
If your team would like to provide a 1-2 hr demo, please complete the information below. If your team is just visiting, there is no need to register, as the event is free and open to the public. And if you decide to join us, PLEASE WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES, which is the only way a person can go into the robot pits. Hope to see you at the Bayou Regional!
