||Introduce younger students to real-world engineering challenges with FIRST® LEGO® League. Students will build LEGO robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.|
Elementary and middle-school students get to:
- Design, build, test and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
Apply real-world math and science concepts
- Research challenges facing today’s scientists
- Learn critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills
- Participate in tournaments and celebrations
What FLL teams accomplish is nothing short of amazing. It’s fun. It’s exciting. And the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
