Hello from Jr.FLL!
We are very excited to announce a new addition to the Jr.FLL program. The Jr.FLL Online Showcase!
The Jr.FLL Online Showcase is the newest way for Jr.FLL teams to share the work they are doing this season. On the Online Showcase, coaches create a profile, upload team pictures and then with the team, search for other teams around the world and award them virtual stickers for a job well done. It’s an awesome way for teams to connect with each other!
The Online Showcase officially launches today November 1 to all registered Jr.FLL teams. Please feel free to take a moment to check out this awesome new website at http://jrfllshowcase.usfirst.org. There are a small number of teams already in the system so take some time to check out their pictures and profiles!
Thank you for your support of the Jr.FLL program.
