FIRST LEGO League Challenge & Season Info

Ignite interest in robotics and STEM! Now is a great time to help your students or children experience FIRST® LEGO® League during our "off-season" and watch the thrill of learning through hands-on discovery.

FIRST® LEGO® League, one of four STEM-learning programs from FIRST®, immerses kids in real-world science and technology challenges. Teams of kids ages 9 to 14 are challenged to design their own solution to current scientific problems, then build LEGO® robots that perform autonomous "missions." In the process, they develop valuable life skills and discover exciting career possibilities in science and technology. They even discover that they, too, can make positive contributions to society.

Right now is a great time to give FIRST LEGO League a try.

5 Steps to Get Started

We're entering our "off-season" (December – June), which gives teachers, parents and other potential Coaches an opportunity to "get their feet wet" and build a FIRST LEGO League team just for fun, without all the pressure of preparing for competition. Using the ANIMAL ALLIESSM theme, your child can practice team-building skills, build robots, and conduct a real-world research Project that’s all about improving interactions between people and animals. The experience will prepare you for future FIRST LEGO League Challenges – and the whole team will have a lot of fun! 

Registration for the competition season is closed. Registration for the non-compete, "off season" is open now. Register here.

Get ready.  Get set.  Roar!  Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIESSM season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends.  In the 2016/2017 FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, more than 28,000 teams of students age 9 to 14* will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIES.  What might become possible when we learn to help each other?
