FIRST LEGO League participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together. In FIRST LEGO League, students engage in hands-on STEM experiences, building confidence, growing their knowledge and developing habits of learning. FIRST LEGO League’s three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

3. FIRST Robotics combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition “The Ultimate Sport for the Mind” and High school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It is as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship. This activity is a very rigorous and requires students to make a time commitment to 3 to 4 times a week.
4. A comprehensive Leadership and Professional Development program. The topics will cover Educational Transitioning, Social Media and Grit. The topics will cover Educational Transitioning, Social Media and Grit. The Career Exploration sessions will allow students to learn from leading young
