First Lego League (FLL): Into Orbit
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. Teams have up to 10 students ages 9-14.
Join our mission into the 30th season of FIRST®! Prepare for blast off, break out of your earthly constraints and go INTO ORBIT. The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League season will transport your team into space, where you’ll explore, challenge, and innovate in the vast expanse of space.
Apollo Next Giant Leap Student Challenge (ANGLeS): Lunar Lander
Complete a NASA challenge that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. ANGLeS is a great introductory STEM challenge for teams of 2-5 in grades 5-12.
Landing: Design a Lunar Module that you’ll use to recreate the Apollo 11 moon landing. Fly a drone carrying your Lunar Module and land it on a designated landing zone on the lunar surface.
First Steps: Once your drone drops off your Lunar Module, place your EV3 Lunar Rover on the moon.
Objectives: Program your Lunar Rover to traverse the lunar surface and complete a series of objectives.
First Tech Challenge (FTC): Rover Ruckus
First® Rover Ruckus Presented by Qualcomm® Incorporated is played on a 12 ft. × 12 ft. (3.7m × 3.7m) square field with approximately 1 ft. (0.3m) high walls and a soft foam mat floor. The object of the game is to attain a higher scores than the opposing alliance by descending from the Lander, collecting Minerals from the Crater, sorting and scoring Minerals into the Cargo Hold of the Lander, performing autonomous tasks, and navigating to specific parts of the Playing Field.
First Core Values: It’s way more than building robots. We express the FIRST philosophies of Gracious Professionalism and Cooperation through our core values:
