FLL Robotics Competition

Imaginative thinking and teamwork build tomorrow’s innovators

Join IMA Bot Club to compete in the 30th season of First LEGO League as a team. 

With adult Coaches to guide them, FIRST LEGO League  teams (up to 10 members) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.

 

Proven, verifiable impact!

The positive impact League has on participants is gratifying and well documented. Over 88% are more interested in doing well in school, and 87% have more interest in attending college.

Teams get to:

  • Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  • Design, build, test and program robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology
  • Apply real-world math and science concepts
  • Learn critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills
  • Participate in tournaments and celebrations
  • Understand and practice Gracious Professionalism®
