Great Time to Build Tables

As you know FLL requires a table where your team's robot accomplishes its missions. The usual construction of the FLL game table consists of heavy wood components - plywood and 2x4 lumber. This traditional table is very heavy and not easily stored and limits who can participate in FLL to those who have enough space to accommodate this table.

However The Inventioneers have designed a game table that weighs only 10 lbs and folds for storage. We call it The Inventioneers STOW-OR-GO Home Practice Table. Our table can be set up on a dining room table one minute, stored away the next, and fits easily into the back of a minivan for portability! This opens up the FLL program to people who don't have a room to permanently devote to a 4 foot by 8 foot table (at least for the FLL season which runs September through November, December or beyond). Also, for teams that want to meet at different people's houses, our table is easily transported.

If you are interested in a table then you are in luck! The Inventioneers have started a long-term partnership with the Home Depot. Through this partnership the Home Depot will be hosting the first of several DIY (Do-It-Yourself Clinics) on this Saturday, November 7th at 10:00 a.m. in Londonderry, NH. They will pre-cut all the pieces, provide screws and adhesive as well as building space and assistance. The Inventioneers will be on hand to help, too. The cost for the finished table will be approximately $45 instead of the original cost of $60.

If you are interested please email us at to register. Please let us know by November 5th so we can give the Home Depot a final table count!
