What is the FIRST LEGO League?
FIRST LEGO League competitions consist of 4 main events:
- Robot Games - Three 2.5 minute matches, where the robot is programmed to run autonomously to complete as many missions as possible and accumulate points.
- Robot Design and Strategy Presentation - A 10 minute session in which teams present the robots they built and programmed for the Robot Game, and explain to judges their design and strategy.
- Core Values - A 10 minute session in which teams are given an activity to demonstrate their teamwork, problem solving skills, and other care values central to the mission of FIRST programs (See Vision Statement of FIRST below).
- Research Project - Identify a problem, design a solution, share problem and solution with others.
