Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST® LEGO® League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution.
FLL students must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. This all adds up to tons of fun ,while students learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, students develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to the competition judges.
