It was very apparent that these kids were not just there to win a tournament but they really loved being there and wanted to help. This just made me love FIRST LEGO League even more than I already did, and realize just how great this organization is! Thank you all!

How it comes together
Once they have everything they need, students work together to design, build and program a robot in a hands-on, sports-like atmosphere. Further challenging their STEM skills, students then develop a practical solution to a current, real-world problem in an internationally-recognized, competitive environment.
Kids are engaged, motivated and empowered with skills that last a lifetime!
