FIRST  LEGO League “Practice” Kits


  • What is a practice kit?   FIRST LEGO League :  Challenge, Explore & Discover  “practice kits” are actually previous season, themed, program kits that are available for purchase at a discounted rate.  They are handy to introduce teams to the program during Terms 1 & 2 in Australia before the new season/game releases each August.
  • What is the timeline for availability of a “practice kit”?  A new, themed season releases each year on 1 August.  To get a new season kit,  teams must officially via the FIRST Dashboard registration portal and participate actively in the season. However, in January of the year following the season launch, any kits that are remaining in the warehouse are added to the “Practice Kit ” order portal at a discounted rate.  Stocks available only while supplies last.
  • Pickup or Shipment?  Orders may picked up in person from Macquarie University (50 Waterloo Rd, Macquarie Park) or shipped via TNT.   Pickup must be organised with and are generally available Monday through Friday, 10 am – 3 pm.  Availability of the pickup option may be affected by university closures (i.e. COVID-19) and availability of staff.
  • Invoice vs Credit Card payment?  Currently, both options are available for the time being (as outlined below) while the university transitions to a credit card only payment system (based on state/territory of delivery).  At the moment, the info below may be confusing, so please reach out to with any questions prior to placing an order.
