What is FIRST LEGO League Robotics?
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.
Students engage in hands-on STEM experiences, building habits of learning, confidence, and teamwork skills along the way. They will grow their critical thinking, coding and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics. Our Challenge team will be fourth and fifth graders from Rock Springs Elementary.
