Hear from Transportation Experts    

FLC Chat

In partnership with Amazon, we are launching two new transportation-themed Class Chats panels to help keep
your students’ minds moving as they return to school and/or prepare for their FIRST® LEGO® League season.  The panels will be especially helpful for teams looking for Innovation Project inspiration and resources.


Join us for our first panel, Amazon Transportation 101,

on Wednesday, September 29, at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Students will learn how Amazon delivers packages all the way to their doorstep and meet experts from each part of our transportation process (“Global, First, Middle and Last Mile”). Register now.


Watch Galactic Builders Season 2 Episode 2 


In “Building Community with a Star Wars-Inspired
Droid Builder,” learn how people like Psy DeLacey, an experienced droid builder and Technical Director at Pixar,

learns and builds together. We also head to Texas and
meet a FIRST® Robotics Competition team, The Iron Tigers,
to learn how they build their own Star Wars-inspired droids. Watch episode 2 now featuring The Iron Tigers

Call for Teams with Patents  

Has your team pursued intellectual property protection for
a past Innovation Project?  Whether it was a provisional patent, submitting an application for a full utility patent (or equivalent in your home country), or receiving a patent, please let us know.  FIRST has an ongoing relationship with the Office of Education and Outreach at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and we occasionally have opportunities for teams who have chosen to pursue intellectual property to help educate others on how it is an important part of the innovation process. If this applies to your team, please email globalinnovation@firstinspires.org.  



What’s your team working on this week? Let us know with a tweet to @firstlegoleague or Facebook post and make sure to use #CARGOCONNECT!
