FLL introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.
Elementary and middle-school students get to:
Design, build, test and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
Apply real-world math and science concepts
Research challenges facing today’s scientists
Learn critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills
Participate in tournaments and celebrations
What FLL teams accomplish is nothing short of amazing. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
FLL is a competitive league activity. Teams meet after school hours and possibly on the weekend. The meeting schedule is determined by the team coach. Background checks are required for all coaches.
Each team is limited to 10 students.
