HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. supports teams

Team Funding

In cooperation with committed companies, we would like to enable even more children and young people to participate in FIRST LEGO League. In the 2020/21 season, there are numerous support offers - for teams taking part for the first time, but also for teams that have already gained their first FIRST LEGO League experience.

Many thanks to the supporting companies:
John Deere, LEGO Education, Sage and Walt Disney

Bring a junior friend -
FIRST LEGO League Explore Teams attract newcomers

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

Both the new team (from a school/institution, which has not participated in FIRST LEGO League Explore so far), as well as the already involved team recruiting the rookie, will receive a credit of 50% of their participation fee.

This offer is valid for 5 team pairs that register and choose the option “Bring a junior friend” in the FIRST LEGO League Explore 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.

WeDo sets for lending

For new teams, HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. offers LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 sets to lend for their first season. This offer is only valid while stocks last. If you're interested please contact us.
