A hands-on approach to STEM learning. (Grades PreK-8)

FIRST® LEGO® League's three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow critical thinking, coding and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

It’s way more than building robots. (Grades 7-12)

FIRST® Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and program robots from a reusable platform to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

Our future—built better together. (Grades 9-12)

FIRST® Robotics Competition teams design, program, and build a robot starting with a standard kit of parts and common set of rules to play in a themed head-to-head challenge.

Our Mission
