FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a robotics competition for ages 8-14 that uses LEGO Mindstorms to teach science, math, engineering, teamwork, and problem solving.
Watch this video to learn about this year’s FLL Robot Challenge:
FLL is one of four competition levels under the FIRST program. FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. FIRST LEGO League and Junior FIRST LEGO League (or FLL and JFLL, for short) are powerful programs that help young people discover the fun in science and technology while building self-confidence, knowledge, and valuable employment and life skills.
Every year, students in grades 4-8 (FLL) and 1-3 (JFLL) meet twice a week during competition season to research a real world problem, present scientific solutions, and build a robot to navigate a themed obstacle course.
