Robotics at Heritage Village

The Greater Grand Forks Robotics Club has 4 program components 1) FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) Jr. teams for elementary youth age 6-10, 2) FLL® teams for elementary youth age 9-14, 3) FRC high school team and 4) the off-season club with separate elementary and middle school levels. We do not charge the youth to participate; we want every child to have the opportunity. The families cover the cost of a team t-shirt and donations from businesses cover the expenses of the competition. Each year the FLL® teams must register and purchase a field challenge kit. Over time new robots and new laptops need to be purchased to replace old technology. As funds become available the club is replacing the old laptops with Bluetooth compatible laptops. 

            The off-season robotics club program provides engineering and technology experience to youth that were not able to be on a team. The club also provides leadership opportunities to team members who help teach robotics and coding. A qualified teacher, professional or university student is hired to lead the off-season robotics club.


The Greater Grand Forks Robotics Club is a partnership of the Dakota Science Center, the Heritage Foundation and the Grand Forks Public Library. As non-profit organizations we need to find funding for the club from community businesses. A tax-deductible contribution of any size would be greatly appreciated. Financial contributions can be sent to the Heritage Village (PO Box 281, East Grand Forks, MN 56721). To show our appreciation we post our sponsors on our website.
