FIRST LEGO League is an exciting and fun global robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm for discovery, science, and technology in kids ages 9 to 14 (16 outside of the U.S. and Canada).  Each year FIRST LEGO League teams embark on an adventurous Challenge based on current, real-world issues. Guided by a team coach and assisted by mentors, the teams:
Research and solve a real-world problem based on the Challenge theme
Build an autonomous robot using engineering concepts
Experience how much can be accomplished when working together as a team
Using a Challenge theme that changes each year, FIRST LEGO League:
  • Entices children to think like scientists and engineers
  • Provides a fun, creative, hands-on learning experience
  • Teaches children to experiment and overcome obstacles
  • Builds self-esteem and confidence
  • Inspires participation in science and technology
No matter what the child’s subject interest, FIRST LEGO League offers an opportunity for engagement. Whether it is by creativity, technology, or research, FIRST LEGO League dares kids to test, explore, expand, or completely change thoughts and approaches for different sciences each year.
