What is FIRST LEGO League Jr?

(Kindergarten- 4th Graders)

Just like FIRST LEGO League, this program features a real-world challenge, to be explored by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to create solutions and present them for review.

Younger elementary school students

  • Design and build challenge solutions using LEGO elements
  • Apply real-world math and science concept
  • Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  • Learn team-building and presentation skills
  • Develop Show-Me posters
