Welcome to FIRST LEGO League!
Guided by two or more adult coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8) research and develop a solution for a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling or energy. They also must design, build and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, and then compete with it on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications and even presentation skills as they present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.
