FIRST LEGO® League Divisions

FIRST® LEGO League guides youth through STEM learning and exploration at an early age. Moving through Explore and then to Challenge, young people will understand the basics of STEM and apply their skills in an exciting competition while gaining productive learning habits, confidence and teamwork skills along the way.

In Explore, teams of students ages 6-10 focus on the fundamentals of engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn to design, and code and create unique solutions made with LEGO bricks and powered by LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0.
