FIRST® LEGO® League

FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) is an international robotics and innovation program. FLL ignites enthusiasm for science, engineering and technology in boys and girls ages 9 to 14.

Youth solve real-world challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a themed playing field. FLL teams discover exciting careers and contributions to society.

FLL teams participate in four equally weighted aspects of competition.

Performance

Robots have 2 minutes 30 seconds to complete missions on a 4′ x 8′ playing field. Teams earn points based on performance in these missions.

Robot Design 

Team members explain their robot design and programming to judges. Judges ask questions about team members' roles and individual understanding.

Projects 

Each year the Challenge theme has a presentation topic. Teams research and present creatively to judges. Judges ask questions about their understanding of the topic.

Teamwork 

Teams are judged on their teamwork skills and interactions. Communication, respect, responsibility and problem solving skills are part of the competition.
