FIRST LEGO League Robotics

Friends Christian School is proud to offer the opportunity for students to participate in the FIRST LEGO League robotics program. FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is a program that introduces children to science and technology in a sporty atmosphere.

The objective is

  • to make children and youngsters enthusiastic about science and technology;
  • to equip the participants with the idea of team spirit
  • to encourage children and youngsters to solve complex tasks in a creative way

The basis of FLL is a robotics tournament in a cheerful atmosphere, where kids and youngsters work to solve a tricky mission with the help of a robot. The kids research a given topic within a team; they plan, program and test an autonomous robot to solve the mission. The FLL Teams take the opportunity to experience all steps of a real product development process—solving a problem under time pressure with insufficient resources and unknown competitors.
