FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge is one of three divisions by age group of the FIRST LEGO League program. This program inspires young people to experiment and grow their confidence, critical, thinking, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning.
This year's FIRST LEGO League challenge is called CARGO CONNECTSM. Teams will learn about how cargo is transported, sorted, and delivered to its destinations. As more demands are placed on transportation systems, the children need to rethink how cargo is transported from place to place. We have the power to build a path forward and invent the future of transportation. And it starts here, with you.
All FIRST® programs are built on a foundation of Core Values, celebrating discovery, impact, inclusion, innovation, teamwork, and fun. They will help guide your team through their journey and show what fun it can be to work together.
