FIRST LEGO League
FIRST LEGO League is an international program for children which combines a hands-on, interactive robotics program with a sports-like atmosphere. FIRST LEGO League International introduces children around the world in elementary and middle schools to the fun and experience of solving real-world problems by applying math, science, and technology. FIRST LEGO League is a result of an exciting alliance between FIRST and the LEGO Company. Guided by adult mentors and their own imaginations, FLL students solve real-world engineering challenges, develop important life skills, and learn to make positive contributions to society.
