FIRST LEGO League (FLL) brings theory and practice together.  Working in an environment that encourages inquiry and hands-on experimentation, team members fulfill roles modeled after real world project teams.

The FIRST LEGO League  is the result of a partnership between FIRST and The LEGO Group.   FLL is an exciting and fun global robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm for discovery, science, and technology in kids ages 9 to 14.  

Throughout the world,  FIRST has partnered with nonprofits, universities and others to support and deliver  FIRST LEGO League in that region.  Playing At Learning is the operational partner for Northern California.

Support NorCal FLL   

Playing At Learning does not receive the team registration fees that teams pay to FIRST.  In addition,  we use the tournament qualifier fees to directly support the tournaments themselves  - the fees pay for items such as facility costs (rent, custodians),  awards,  volunteer food and field setup kits.  


We need your HELP directly to  better  handle the tournament infrastructure and team growth and help with better support/recruit volunteers!
