Bring A Friend – FIRST LEGO League Challenge Teams attract Newcomer

HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. supports partnerships between already active and rookie teams: If an existing FIRST LEGO League Challenge Team is attracting an absolute newcomer team, both teams will receive a credit as a little thank you.

Both the new team (from a school, which has not participated in FIRST LEGO League Challenge so far), as well as the already involved team recruiting the rookie, will receive a credit of 50% of their participation fee. If the teams need a challenge set, they have to take care of the costs by themselves.

This offer is valid for 5 team pairs that register before summer holidays and choose the option “Bring A Friend” in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge Registration form for teams. We then will check the teams' eligibility. The “Bring A Junior Friend” promotion will start with the opening of registration on April 20th, 2020.
