First LEGO® League
Attention: Primary and High Schools
For students ages 9-16 FLL introduces real-world engineering challenges by building robots using LEGO® Mindstorms®
technology to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface.
Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the
Project and the FLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with one adult coach, participate in the Challenge
by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution
to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values. Teams may then choose to attend
an official tournament In State around Australia or NZ.
Past Challenges have been based on topics such as nanotechnology, climate, quality of life for the handicapped population,
transportation, improving the quality of life for seniors. By designing challenges around such topics, students
are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM principles
that naturally come from participating in a robotics program. Team members also learn valuable life and employment
skills which will benefit them no matter which career path they choose.
