We would like to invite you to be a sponsor of the FIRST LEGO League Junior (FLL Jr.) program on Long Island. This wonderful program promotes interest in science and technology among our youth between the ages of six to nine.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology) is the brainchild of the well-known inventor and businessman, Dean Kamen. This program features a real-world scientific concept to be explored through research, teamwork, construction, and imagination. Guided by adult Coaches, teams use LEGO® bricks to build a model that moves and develop a Show Me Poster to illustrate their journey. They also research and develop a solution to a problem in keeping with the year’s theme.
School-Business Partnerships of Long Island (SBPLI) is a not-for-profit organization that has been uniting schools and businesses for over 20 years. The FIRST programs are the centerpieces of SBPLI’s mission to prepare Long Island’s youth to meet tomorrow’s engineering and technology workforce needs. Since 1999, SBPLI has supported the LI FIRST Robotics Competition for high school students. In 2008, we started FLL Jr. for elementary school students.
We need your support to continue this exciting program. Please contact us for information regarding sponsorship opportunities.
