First LEGO League Team
FIRST Lego League combines the excitement of competition with hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math challenges that engage the mind. The program would serve as an after school enrichment activity for students in grades four through eight. Teams register and organize over the summer. Then, in early fall FLL releases the Challenge for the season. Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Research Project, and the FLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with at least one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Research Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values. In November and December teams compete at official tournaments, where their robots, projects, and teamwork skills are evaluated by judges.
