CFC #36476


Introduces young people to the fun and excitement of science and technology while building knowledge and life skills. Teams solve problems using engineering concepts, research techniques and robots.


FIRST LEGO League is a robotics program for 9 to 14-year-olds, designed to get children excited about science and technology while teaching them valuable employment lessons and life skills. During the season, which runs from August – September (and perhaps later depending on the success of the team), teams will meet at least once a week to design and program a robot to complete a series of tasks. Teams will develop an innovative solution to solve a problem based on the theme. FIRST LEGO League is a great and interactive way to introduce and encourage STEM based experiences.

Registration Fee: $100/player
