You must attend Glastonbury public schools to participate through our programs.
But please remember...
FIRST is a global program, not a Glastonbury program. Anyone can form and fund their own teams.
Please visit firstinspires.org to learn more about these great programs.
If school is cancelled, LEGO is cancelled.
