Getting started with MINDSTORMS EV3


First LEGO League

The FIRST® LEGO® League is a robotics program for 9 to 16 year olds (9 to 14 in US/CAN/MEX), which is designed to get children excited about science and technology -- and teach them valuable employment and life skills.

Teams of up to 10 kids program an autonomous robot (using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot set) to score points on a thematic playing surface, create an innovative solution to a problem as part of their Project, all while guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements - the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values - make up what we call our yearly Challenge.

FLL currently has more than 20,000 teams in 70 countries.
