Junior FIRST® LEGO® League captures young children's curiosity and directs it toward discovering the wonders of science and technology.
Skills Learned: Children are able to solve unusual and stimulating problems through creativity, persistence, learned skills, and cooperation. FLL empowers students to be more successful problem solvers in their own lives and in future problem solving situations.
Junior FIRST® LEGO® League teams are about to learn that throwing something in the trash is only the beginning. In the 2015-2016 WASTE WISE Challenge, over 34,500 children ages 6 to 9 from 18 countries will look at trash in a whole new way. From reducing, to reusing, to recycling, and beyond, find out what making trash really means. Prepare to become Waste Wise!
Each year, Junior FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL®) presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of young children. While exploring the real-world theme, teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized part. They will also learn to present information through a Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the Jr.FLL signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
