Competitions

Tens of thousands of school and after-school teams take part in international engineering and robotics competitions each year using LEGO® Education resources. Contests are sponsored and run by industrial and educational professionals eager to promote science, technology and innovation skills from an early age.

 
 

Jr. FIRST LEGO League

Jr. FLL captures the imagination and minds of thousands of six to nine-year-olds each year, with a real-world challenge to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches, students work with LEGO Technic elements and moving parts to create solutions and present them for review. They design and build solutions using LEGO elements, explore real world challenges faced by today’s scientists and develop Show-Me poster presentations of their own thoughts and ideas. In 2010 there were approximately 1,500 Jr.FLL teams competing in the US and Canada, the Netherlands and Belgium. The competition season runs from September to July.

 FIRST® LEGO League (FLL)

FLL is a robotics program for nine to 16 year olds (nine to 14 in the US and Canada), designed to get children excited about science and technology and teach them valuable work and life skills. FLL can be used in a classroom setting but is not solely designed for this purpose. Teams of up to 10 children with at least one adult coach, can also be associated with a club or organization, home-schooled, or just be a group of friends who wish to do something awesome. FLL is an alliance between FIRST® and the LEGO Group. In 2010 there were more than 14,500 teams participating in 59 countries, and more than 40 qualifying championship tournaments staged around the world. The competition season runs from September to April.

FIRST Tech Challenge

FTC is designed by FIRST on principles similar to FLL, but for 14 to 18-year-olds. Teams of up to 10 students compete head-to-head, using a robotic sports model. The students, coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as for well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments. The winning team qualifies for close to $7 million in college scholarships. In 2010 there were 1,300 FTC teams in five countries (US and Canada, the Netherlands, Mexico and China).

World Robot Olympiad

The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) brings together young people all over the world to develop their creativity and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robot competitions. Schools are invited to enter a team of two or three students in one of three different age groups (from age 7 to19).
For the Regular Category competition, participating teams must design, build and program robots in order to complete a specific challenge. Teams participating in the theme based Open Category competition use their skills to construct advanced robotic solutions. In 2011 the WRO will introduce WRO GEN II Football, a robot football competition. All WRO competitions are based on LEGO® MINDSTORMS®. In 2010 there were more than 12,000 teams participating in more than 30 countries. The competition season runs from March to November.
