Welcome to the world of FIRST Lego League! Whether you’ve already been with FIRST by participating in Junior FLL, or this being your first robotics experience, FIRST Lego League is an excellent place to be to spark and foster your robotics interests!
So how exactly does FLL work? Every year, your team will be presented with three challenges: Creating a robot, Undertaking a project, and crafting the Core Values of the team. In this tutorial, we’ll only cover creating the robot, but don’t forget the other parts as they are equally integral to FLL. The Project will be a poster or a skit that you present each year to show your thoughts and ideas about the challenge each year. The Core Values are separate challenges each year that gives an opportunity to show your dedication to the ideal values of FLL: Teamwork, cooperation, creativity, and perseverance.
