Types of FLL Challenge Events

  • Qualifying Tournaments

    When: November 2022 – January 2023

    Where: In-Person

  • Iowa FLL Challenge in-person events take place throughout the FLL Season all over Iowa. Iowa FLL Qualifying tournaments are a great chance for teams to display all the hard work the teams have put into the season. Teams will get to meet and present their ideas to a panel of judges to get valuable feedback on how to improve and further develop their projects. They will also participate in robot rounds where they send their robot to complete as many tasks as possible for points in a two minute and thirty second round. Teams will complete in multiple robot rounds in order to display their best score. A select number of teams will qualify out of a Qualifying tournament to the Iowa FLL Challenge Championships.
