GSSEM FIRST

Due to COVID-19, the 2020-2021 FIRST season schedule has changed.

Team registration deadlines:

  • November 1, 2020 - FIRST LEGO League Challenge (formerly FLL)
  • March 15, 2021 - FIRST LEGO League Explore (formerly JFLL)

Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan (GSSEM) and FIRST have teamed up to provide an exciting adventure in robotics for our Girl Scouts! Teams develop unique solutions to a challenge throughout the summer and fall, and then they present their work at GSSEM's FIRST Robotics Expo in the spring.

Due to the generous support from our sponsors, GSSEM is able to cover all fees for team registration, robotics kits, and admission to the FIRST Robotics Expo for our teams and their families.

GSSEM is also proud to sponsor Girltastic, our pioneer Cadette-level FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team! To find out how to join Girltastic—or start your own FTC team—please submit this form.
