About Us

Hi! We’re the Amazon River Dolphins, a FIRST Lego League team from East Montpelier, Vermont. FIRST is a not-for-profit public charity that administers four different international STEM education programs aimed at kids K-through high school ages. FIRST LEGO League (FLL), the program we participate in, is for kids aged 9 to 14. This is our third year in FIRST Lego League. We had some success in our first two years; our rookie year we won two 1st place awards out our Vermont Qualifier and did well at the Regional Championship in NH. Our second year we again move on to Regional Championship in NH with a very consistent Robot Game performance. This year we are hoping to build on our success at Vermont's first Regional Championship.
This year's topic is Trash and we will be competing with more than 233,000 children from over 80 countries who will explore the fascinating world of trash. With five of us returning for our third year of working together, we all wanted to really focus on the project this year and come up with a solution that could really help solve an issue with Trash. This year's event is again at Norwich University on November 15th, please come and see us and about 30 or more Vermont teams as they tackle "TrashTrek".
