IMPORTANT SEASON INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 FOR SPRING 2020

Due to the current and potential threat of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and in accordance with university and public health recommendations, Iowa FIRST® LEGO® League and Iowa State Engineering Kids events will be postponed until further notice. We regret this disappointing news. Our primary concern is always the health and safety of our participants, staff and our volunteers.

In the meantime, please check out our new Fun At Home activities page where each day we are sharing STEM activities, movie suggestions and more for the whole family. We will also be posting a LEGO build challenge each Wednesday for all ages.

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 Iowa State Engineering Kids (ISEK) events.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at ISEK@iastate.edu. We wish everyone the best. Thank you for your interest in our programs. We hope very much that we are back together again very soon. Stay safe – be well.
