New Mexico FLL Qualifier Advancement 
Advancing team invitations are announced during the closing ceremony of each Qualifier 

Advancing team registration - see FLL Championship page 

Advancement Policy

Teams are eligible for advancement if they meet the following criteria as required by the FIRST LEGO League Global Standards and the annual Challenge:

  • Follow the FIRST LEGO League Participation Rules - participation rules
  • Robot Performance: The team’s single, highest score is used to create the performance placement for all teams.
  • Project: The team must complete all parts of the Project, including the identification of a real-world problem related to the Challenge theme, creation of an innovative solution and sharing their research and solution with others, as well as any other season-specific requirements that may exist.
  • Core Values: The team must adhere to all Core Values throughout the event and the season

Official Event judges look for balanced, strong performance across all areas; this means that all three judged sessions (Core Values, Robot Design, and Project) and the Robot Game performance are weighted equally (each worth 25% of the team’s overall score)

Advancement % =

(Championship venue capacity - 36) / (Total number of teams registered for Qualifiers in NM Region)

Number of teams advancing from a Qualifier =

(Number of teams registered at the Qualifier) x (Advancement %)
