First Lego League (FLL)

FIRST LEGO League introduces science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to children ages 4-16* through fun, exciting hands-on learning. FIRST LEGO League participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students and teachers build a better future together. FIRST LEGO League’s three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

 

FLL Challenge Division

Join Bytes and Bots for a chance to be part of a winning team! Our participation in the First Lego League (FLL) Challenge competition has been a huge success, with our team winning the qualifier, regional, and advancing to the championship!

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of a championship team. Sign up your child, aged 9-16, for FLL through Bytes and Bots, and let them experience the excitement and challenge of the FLL competition.

When does it start?

Sign-ups for the upcoming season will begin on May. Our program includes two practice months (June – July) where students will work with experienced mentors to learn about the FLL competition and work on prior year versions of the challenge. Last month to signup is August.

 

When is practice?

Practices typically occur on Saturdays or Sundays, depending on each student’s schedule, and are usually 4 hours long.

The Bytes and Bots lab is open Monday – Sunday from 12pm – 8pm all days (closed on major holidays). It is recommended for teams to meet once per week, and as the competition nears, meeting twice per week is recommended.

Our recommended meeting times are Sundays from 12:00pm – 6pm (6 hours) or Saturday and Sunday 3pm – 6pm (3 hours each day total of 6 hours)

Season Duration

The FLL competition itself runs from August through December, during which time students will continue to work with mentors to design, build, and program LEGO robots to complete specific missions, as well as conduct research on a real-world problem related to the competition theme.
