ORTOP offers FIRST LEGO League Coach, Mentor, and Parent workshops through the summer and early fall. These workshops are open to all interested adults and teens who would like to learn more about FIRST LEGO League and working with FIRST LEGO League teams. Sign up HERE.
We are beginning to schedule workshops now for June through September. If you do not live in the Portland Metro area, or Salem (all which will have scheduled workshops) and would like to have a workshop in your community, please complete this form to let us know and we will be happy to add your community if there is enough interest (a minimum of 12 adults from 5 teams and a location are required to add a new workshop). Dates will be determined based on the availability of volunteers and are most often Saturdays.
