Engaging Youth in STEM Exploration
FIRST® LEGO® League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children ages 4-16* through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together.
Our three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.
FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge (Grades 4 – 8)
Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students ages 9-16* engage in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering – building and programming a LEGO® robot that navigates the missions of a robot game.
FIRST® LEGO® League Explore (Grades 2 – 4)
In Explore, teams of students ages 6-10* focus on the fundamentals of engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn to design, and code and create unique solutions made with LEGO® bricks and powered by LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0.
FIRST® LEGO® League Discover (Grades PreK-1)
For children ages 4-6*, this playful introductory STEM program ignites their natural curiosity and builds their habits of learning with hands-on activities in the classroom and at home using LEGO® DUPLO® bricks.
