What is FIRST LEGO ?

An international program for children ages 9-14 that combines a hands-on, interactive robotics program with a sports-like atmosphere. Teams consist of up to 10 players with the focus on such things as team building, problem solving, creativity, and analytical thinking.
Each September, a new Challenge is unveiled to FLL International teams across the world. Over the course of 8 weeks, they stragegize, design, build, program, test and refine a fully autonomous robot capable of completing the various missions of the FLL International "Robot Game" Using the LEGO MINDSTORMS™technology. They also search the web, talk to scientists, visit the library and develop compelling presentations based on the FLL International "Research Assignment", which relates to a problem or opportunity facing the world today.


The Values and Philosophy behind FLL International

When children build and experiment, they live the entire process of creating ideas, solving problems, and overcoming obstacles. The FIRST LEGO League program meets children where they are and helps to shape a positive perception of science and technology. We believe that children's natural curiosity and creativity are critical qualities to envisioning possibilities and developing innovative solutions to challenging technology problems and opportunities. We therefore strive to strengthen their inherent motivation to learn in new ways.
