More than 250,000 children ages 9-16 in 85+ countries take part in FIRST® LEGO® League every year. With adult coaches to guide them, FIRST LEGO League teams (up to 10 members) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world problems. Each year, FIRST LEGO League issues an exciting challenge based on a real-world theme that includes a research project and a robot game using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology. Along the way, they develop valuable life skills in critical thinking, team building and creating presentations, and celebrate their accomplishments in fun, competitive events.
FIRST LEGO League participants will:
- Design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS robots
- Apply real-world math and science concepts
- Research challenges facing today's scientists and engineers
- Test critical thinking, team building, and presentation skills
- Participate in tournaments and celebrations
What FIRST® LEGO League teams accomplish is nothing short of amazing. It's fun. It's exciting. And the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
Get naturally curious kids interested in science and technology at an early age with FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Teams of 2-6 children ages 6-9 solve real-world challenges in themes that change each year, building their solution with LEGO bricks.
Teams learn about science and engineering as they build a model using the LEGO® Education WeDo, and build their communication skills as they present information on a Show Me poster. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST LEGO League Jr. signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
FIRST LEGO League Jr. provides mentors and teachers a framework for an 8-week in-class enrichment, afterschool program, or club. Mentors can be any adult - a parent, teacher or community member. Commitment is a few hours per week.
Since 2011, the Google Science Fair has become the world’s largest online science fair with thousands of entries from students in more than 90 countries. The Google Science Fair is open to students ages 13-18 worldwide. All projects are submitted entirely online, so all students need to participate is a curious mind and an Internet connection.
In addition to the annual Grand Prize Winner, there are seven awards from the science fair partners. These include the LEGO Education Builder Award.
The LEGO Education Builder Award honors a student who uses an innovative, hands-on approach to solve some of the greatest engineering challenges.
The winner, along with a parent or guardian, will travel to The LEGO Group headquarters in Billund, Denmark, where the student will meet with LEGO Education employees and designers. The student will tour the LEGO Manufacturing facilities, LEGO Idea House and receive tickets to LEGOLAND Denmark. They will also receive a custom LEGO brick build designed by one of the LEGO Education designers in Billund, Denmark. The student will also receive a scholarship to further their education as well as have access to work with a LEGO Education executive for one year as a mentor to learn how to launch a business and the art of entrepreneurship.
