The FIRST LEGO League (FLL) global robotics program gives students ages 9 to 14 the opportunity to research and solve a real-world problem, present their work and potential solutions to their peers, and learn from team coaches and mentors.
No matter their interest, FLL dares students to test, explore, expand upon, or even completely change their thoughts and approaches for different scientific problems each year. The program offers a fun, creative, hands-on learning experience that sparks students’ enthusiasm in discovery, science, and technology. They’ll think like scientists and engineers as they experiment and overcome obstacles, all while building their self-esteem and confidence.
