First Lego League
Teams are challenged to learn more about the science behind the real-world Challenge theme, then use their creativity to design a solution (or modify an existing solution) to solve the problem.
Teams are required to build and program an autonomous (no remote control) LEGO robot* that can perform theme-based “mission” tasks on a table-top playing field. The missions require the robot to navigate, capture, transport, or deliver objects. The more missions completed, the more points teams earn.
While teams work on the Innovation Project and Robot Game, they are guided by the FIRST Core Values. This set of values is what makes our program so special. Teams are encouraged to compete like crazy but still respect their teammates, coaches, and even help their “competitors.” Our most important Core Value is “Have FUN!”
