FIRST LEGO is an exploration based program where children use LEGO to complete engineering and design challenges that encourage team building, collaborative learning and problem solving. Younger teams will display work in an expo format while older teams may have the opportunity to compete pending plans related to local competitions. Teams will be formed by age/grade groups and will meet Thursdays during times specified above. This program is offered subject to minimum registration. Participants will be contacted by October 9 and receive a full refund if the program is cancelled due to registration.

The First LEGO League Junior Discovery challenge centers around Electricy this year! Teams of 4 - 6 children will learn how to solve problems related to electricity and energy. Teams will think and behave like architects and engineers, developing their ability to work as a team, observe, answer questions, gather information, listen, take turns, share ideas, collaborate and think critically. No experience is required!

The First LEGO League Junior challenge is Energize! Teams of 6 - 8 children will learn how to solve energy and sports related problems. Teams will think and behave like architects and engineers, developing their ability to work as a team, observe, answer questions, gather information, solve problems, collaborate and think critically. No experience is required!

    FIRST LEGO League Challenge     (Ages 9-14) 

Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, ages 9-14) research a real-world problem related to sports. They must design, build, program a robot using LEGO SPIKE PRIME®, then compete on a table-top playing field.

It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEAM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Teams will participate in a local competition in December, if available, and may advance to regional competitions from there.

If you are interested in creating your own team and requesting an AAALC staff member mentor/coach the group, please contact the office directly at 341-1400.
