The Port Townsend STEM Club hosts one FIRST LEGO League (FLL) team and partners with Salish Coast Elementary and the OCEAN Program to host four more FLL teams. FLL is the second tier of competition in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) provided for 4th – 8th grade students.
The Dueling Dragons team #7800 was founded in 2012 under the Port Townsend STEM Club. Over the past eight years the team had achieved many accomplishments such as placing 18th in Washington State at the 2014 State Championships and winning the Champions Award at their event in 2020! The older students on the team now start and mentor rookie teams in Chimacum, Port Townsend and Quilcene.
