FIRST® LEGO® League introduces young people, ages 9 to 16* (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. *Ages vary by country.

Each year FIRST® LEGO® League releases a new Challenge to our teams based on a real-world theme. The Challenge has three parts:
Robot Game: Build and program an autonomous LEGO MINDSTORMS robot.
Project: Teams learn more about the science behind the Challenge theme and design a solution to solve a real-world problem.
Core Values: The Core Values are part of what makes FIRST LEGO League so     special, because kids compete like crazy but respect their teammates, Coaches,     and their “competitors” — and they have FUN!
