FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an international competition organized by FIRST for elementary and middle school students (ages 9–14). Each year in August, FIRST LEGO League introduces a scientific and real-world challenge for teams to focus and research. The robotics part of the competition involves designing and programming LEGO Mindstorms robots to complete tasks. The students work out solutions to the various problems they are given and then meet for regional tournaments to share their knowledge, compare ideas, and display their robots.

The theme for 2018 is "INTO ORBIT".The precise competition dates are released later in the season, with Regional Competition Date options typically in late November or early December. Teams advancing to the State Competition will have practices extending into January.

It’s never too early to discover STEM. FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through LEGO!

Guided by adult coaches and FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, students build models using LEGO® Education WeDo 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. This year's challenge: Mission Moon!

Note that the FLL Jr. Team is expected to participate in at least one Expo event. The date will be chosen by team consensus, likely occurring in late fall or early winter.
