IMPORTANT SEASON INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 FOR SPRING 2020

Due to the current and potential threat of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and in accordance with university and public health recommendations, Iowa FIRST® LEGO® League has decided that, effective immediately, the upcoming Iowa FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Expo events in our state will be postponed until further notice. The March 28 (Cedar Falls) and April 4 (Davenport) events will not be held.

We recognize that teams will likely be disappointed, and we also recognize that teams have put an enormous amount of work into preparing for the season. We regret this disappointing news. Please know this decision was not made lightly. Our primary concern is always the health and safety of our participants and our volunteers.

We will continue to follow recommendations from the CDC, the State of Iowa, University and local health departments as we monitor and assess the situation over the coming weeks to develop a plan to resume our FLL Jr. season and related events.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at flljr@iastate.edu. We wish teams the best as you navigate these uncharacteristic times. Thank you for your interest in the program and attending an Expo this season. We hope very much that we are back on track for later this spring without these circumstances.
