Mission Statement

Our mission is to show students of every age that science, technology, and problem-solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all.

Description

FIRST LEGO League introduces young people, ages 9 to 14* (grades 4-8), to the fun and excitement of science and technology.

Teams, composed of up to ten children with at least two (2) screened Lead Coaches, can also be associated with a pre-existing club or organization, homeschooled, or just be a group of friends who wish to do something awesome.

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) coaches do not need any technical experience. In FLL, the children do the work; like program an autonomous robot (using the LEGO MINDSTORMS robot set) to score points on a thematic playing surface, create innovative solutions to a problem, all while being guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements - the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values - make up what we call our yearly Challenge. Teams also fundraise, create a team identity, and talk to experts in the field.

Teams may attend an official FLL tournament, which is hosted by one of our FIRST LEGO League Partners. FIRST LEGO League Partners run the FLL program in their region or country and are associated with other like-minded organizations to the FIRST LEGO League mission.
