Girl Scouts of Utah offers FIRST robotics teams, which includes Lego League Explore and Lego League Challenge.
Girl Scouts who join a robotics team must be Girl Scouts of Utah members. There is a small fee for the season, which can be paid with Activity Credits or activity scholarships. Teams are tentatively available in three age groups:
Coaches can be any gender but must become a Girl Scouts of Utah member and pass a background check. Coaches do not need to have a STEM background to coach, just a willingness to learn. Some training is provided and a council staff member will provide support. One coach must be certified in CPR/First Aid.
If you have a girl who is interested in a FIRST team or you are interested in coaching, complete the interest survey.
Teams are formed in late summer and early fall based on the location and availability of girls and coaches. Teams run early fall through early winter but may vary based on level and timing of competitions.
