FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 9 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®.
Guided by adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades 2-3) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc.
This years competition is Courageous Creatures. Teams will explore local habitats and the challenges animals may face. Teams will build a model based after their research and incorporate simple machines into their creation.
During the Courageous Creatures season, teams will design an obstacle course that examines a problem relating to local habitats. They will build, test, and program an autonomous robot to run problem solving missions on their obstacle course.
