FIRST Lego League (FLL) is the FIRST program designed for elementary and middle school students. Team STEAM Robotics partners with the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence to offer two FLL teams to the middle school students of Lawrence. For this program, FIRST partners with LEGO to offer students the ability to work with LEGO Mindstorms and the EV3.
Students on an FLL team learn many important life skills such as engineering, programming, leadership, and communication. On these teams, the students are tasked with creating a solution to a current world problem that scientists are working on, and they design and build a robot to play a game on a thematic board. These missions require problem solving skills and critical thinking. In addition, coaches work with members to develop the Core Values of FLL: discovery, innovation, impact, inclusion, teamwork, and fun! At the end of the season, these teams go and compete against other area teams in an exciting and competitive event.
FLL is a great program for students who are curious and ready to learn! Contact us for more information.
