I coached a FLL team this past year and thought it was a very worthwhile activity. If on the pricey side. You could also go searching for a team in your area--but First really is not set up to make this easy. My15 yo dd did find a First Robotics Team at a local high school that let her join for free.

Another path some parents follow is to find Robotics clubs at science museums if there are any nearby. One of the afterschool clubs (check out science magnet schools) may also welcome you.
Good luck! FLL has been a lot of fun!

Hasn't First announced that they will probably not use VEX next year. If you are planning on doing First Tech Challenge formingly First VEX you don't want to buy the VEX system until they make the final decision.
I had not realized this. Our purchase had been delayed by some bureaucratic restructuring within 4-H. Looks like that may be a good thing.
