Start A Team

FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) introduces young people, ages 9 to 14 (grades 4-8), to the fun and excitement of science and technology. Children program an autonomous robot (using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot set) to score points on a thematic playing surface, create innovative solutions to a problem, all while being guided by the program’s signature Core Values. Each year in November there is a regional tournament at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center.

Each year FLL releases a new Challenge.

• Robot Game - Build and program an autonomous LEGO MINDSTORMS robot.

• Project: Teams learn more about the science behind the Challenge and design a solution to solve a real-world problem.

• Core Values - Kids compete like crazy but still respect their teammates, coaches and their competitors - and they have Fun!
