Disaster Blaster Challenge:

Can Junior FIRST® LEGO® League teams help us master natural disasters? In the 2013 DISASTER BLASTER℠ Challenge, over 22,000 children ages 6 to 9 from 12 countries will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will learn how science, technology, engineering, and math impact our everyday lives while they get excited about future innovations. Brace yourself for DISASTER BLASTER! Each year, Jr.FLL presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the inherent creativity in young children. While exploring natural disasters, teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized part and learn to present information through a Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under Jr.FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

Start a Team:

  • Jr.FLL teams are comprised of 2-6 children, ages 6-9. Generally we consider the upper age limit of 9 to be “hard” and the lower limit of 6 to be “soft”. If, after taking in the child’s developmental level, you feel they are capable of participating on a team, then by all means they’re allowed. We have found that kids younger than 6 can be very overwhelmed by the experience and those older than 9 may be bored or not wanting to “play with the little kids”. Remember, for kids that are 9 to 14, FIRST offers the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) program.
  • We highly recommend having at least two members on a team, so that children may truly benefit from the team experience.
  • FIRST does not create the teams or match children to teams. Any adult can start a team at their local level. However, FIRST has a matching system for parents to connect with others to form teams. Try FIRST TeamUp!
  • Anyone can start a Jr.FLL team. Frequently teams are made up of neighborhood groups, school groups, home school organizations, Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, family members, and after school programs.
  • Jr.FLL teams generally meet for 6-8 weeks. Each session should last for about one to two hours, once or twice a week. Many teams meet after school or during another group activity, such as during a Girl Scout or Boy Scout troop meeting.
  • Season materials are available electronically once you register. Season materials include Challenge documents, coaches guide, access to private forums and acces to the Jr.FLL Online Showcase.
