FIRST Lego League

FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO® League (FLL) is an exciting, fun, and global robotics and innovation program that ignites an enthusiasm for discovery, science, teamwork, and technology in kids ages 9 to 14 (16 outside of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico).

Students have the opportunity to solve real-world challenges by building LEGO-based 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, 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; and,
  • 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.
