Welcome to FIRST LEGO League Challenge!
Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League Challenge teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, and then compete with it on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.

“The program allows children to fail, and start again. It teaches them so much more than robotics. They learn to work together, brainstorm fixes for all sorts of problems and walk tall in the knowledge that they can make a difference.”
