Every year, FIRST LEGO League, presents a new exciting challenge to touch off creativity of children from 6 to 10 years old. Every team, up to 6 kids, starts to explore a real problem, helped by LEGO Education Inspire Model. Using LEGO Education Inspire Model as a starting point, they design their own new model with LEGO bricks. As they work, they learn basic mechanical and programming skills with LEGO Education WeDo. They apply these to make their model move. They write down their work in the Engineering Notebook and they share their journey through a poster. During their experience, all of the teams should work with core values, celebrating innovation, teamwork and Gracious Professionalism®.
What is FIRST LEGO League Jr?
FLL Jr focuses on building interest in science and technology in children 6-10 years old. FLL Jr is a program which is planned to stimulate little children’s curiosity and direct it to the discovery of science and technology. The program’s theme is a real world’s challenge that children should look into through research, critical thinking and imagination. Each year’s challenge is based on a different theme and has two main parts: building with LEGO and creating a poster. Guiding by adult trainers and the core values of FLL Jr., team members work with LEGO Education kits and focus on a subject that needs research in order to build their ideas and present them.
