Terms of participation Challenge class 2023/24


By registering your class, you as the team coach agree with having read the following terms of participation and follow them. You are responsible to forward the terms of participation to all students/kids, if necessary, co-coaches, mentors as well as to further persons involved in the team.


Each class must appoint at least one adult coach (min. 18 years). She/he is in charge of the class and co-coaches during the whole season.

For the communication with the FIRST LEGO League Organization (HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V.) the coach must indicate a valid email address which will be used to provide all important information according to the program.

The coach guides the class during the whole season. If there will be a change and another coach is taking over the coach position, HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. must be informed within the next five working days. To take over an existing class the new coach needs to confirm the terms of participation as well. If the coach does not dissent with the terms of participation within five working days after taking over the team the terms of participation are accepted.

As HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. would like to ensure the wellbeing of the participating students/children we reserve the right to have coaches and mentors checked by law (criminal record certificate).


Each class that wants to participate in FIRST LEGO League Challenge In the Classroom must be registered online by the coach at HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e. V. in the coach account. It may consist of a maximum of 30 children between the ages of 9 and 16.

If more than 30 children per coach wish to participate, an additional class must be registered.

The assigned class number must be used for each correspondence with HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. – that includes bank transferal and address specifications. If there are delays in the logistics process (e.g., due to a payment receipt that cannot be allocated), HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. may charge extra costs to the team.


After registration, each class will receive an invoice for the participation fee, materials, and packaging and shipping costs (detailed costs: see price list in the appendix). Classes that receive a grant will not receive an invoice or will receive a partial invoice depending on the extent of the grant.

The timely receipt of payment by HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. is a requirement for participation in FIRST LEGO League Challenge In the classroom.

Class registration fees and fees for the materials are non-refundable. There are no exceptions to this process regardless of reason.


All material will be sent to the specified delivery address from the end of July/beginning of August of the current season (only if the invoice is paid).

If the packages cannot be delivered (e.g., due to vacations, wrong address, etc.), HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. is entitled to charge for the reshipment.


HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. must be informed as soon as possible if a class cannot take part in the program. In case of deregistration no costs can be refunded.

HANDS on TECHNOLOGY e.V. is entitled to exclude classes from FIRST LEGO League Challenge In the classroom due to significant reasons (e.g., a serious coach intervention in the team’s work). Already paid registration fees will be withheld.
