Youth Programs

The FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) is a robotics competition through FIRST® specifically organized for middle school students. Our six partner school districts prepare the middle-schoolers for high school FEAR. This year during FLL®’s six week building season, the students (with the aid of their adult and high school mentors) constructed a robot out of LEGO®s, programmed their robot, did a research project that helped them create an innovative solution to a space themed problem, and focused on team building and the core values. On November 3rd, they participated in a competition at Riverside High School. This year, the Golden Gadgets qualified for sectionals, while Louisa, Nicolet FEAR’s driver for FIRST Power Up, won the Best Mentor Award. There is no doubt that the members of our seven FLL® teams will go on to do great things when they come and participate in the Nicolet FEAR program.
