Lego League Code HS Logo

FIRST LEGO League is a global robotics competition built around theme-based Challenges to engage children in research, problem solving, coding, and engineering.

LEGO League Jr. Discovery Edition

Lego League Jr. Discovery Edition is an introductory STEM program for teams of children grades PreK-1. This pilot edition of the FIRST LEGO League Jr. program is offered in the classroom setting.

LEGO League Jr.

FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10. Guided by adult coaches and FIRST® Core Values, students build models using LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 and create Show Me posters to present what they learned. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through a real-world challenge – to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination.

FIRST Lego League

FIRST® LEGO® League is the most accessible, guided, global robotics competition, helping students and teachers to build a better future together. The program is built around theme-based Challenges to engage children ages 9 to 16* in research, problem solving, coding, and engineering. The foundation of the program is the FIRST® Core Values, which emphasize teamwork, discovery, and innovation. Students emerge more confident, excited, and equipped with the skills they need in a changing workforce.
