Hardship Grant Applications Being Accepted for Hydro Dynamics
The East Tennessee region is accepting applications for a FIRST Lego League hardship grant.  Rookie or veteran teams that do not have the financial means to participate in the 2017 Hydro Dynamics season can submit a request for a grant to the region now.  Apply for a grant here.  Note: If a team has already paid for registration or purchased materials, they are not eligible for this grant.

TVA Finalizes Agreement to Pay FLL Registration Fee for all Teams in the TVA Service Region -UPDATE

The Tennessee Valley Authority has finalized their agreement to pay the $225 registration fee for all veteran and rookie teams in the TVA service area.  This includes all teams in Tennessee.  Teams interested in participating in the Hydro Dynamics Challenge should NOT pay their registration fee until they see the grant funding in their dashboard.  There is no plan to reimburse teams that have already paid their registration fee.  TVA will be sending a check to FIRST in July to support up to 400 teams in the TVA region.  Watch your team dash board for a credit or monitor our East Tennessee web site for more information.  Note: Funding will not be provided until a team has two coaches that have completed the screening process for the Child Protection Program.


Get Pumped

On your mark, get set, flow! Drink in the 2017/2018 HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season and learn all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. In the 2017/2018 FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, students age 9 to 16* from 80 countries will make a splash with HYDRO DYNAMICS. What might become possible when we understand what happens to our water?

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
