FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an international competition organized by FIRST for elementary and middle school students (ages 9–14). Each year in August, FIRST LEGO League introduces a scientific and real-world challenge for teams to focus and research. Your child will then work with a team of students and learn how to design, build, and program a robot using the latest Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit. 

With each season your child will have an opportunity to learn and apply various skills such as problem solving, design, engineering, programing, just to name a few. The difference between the LEGO summer camp and the LEGO League team is that the students will expand upon the basic skills they learned and have an opportunity to use these skills to solve real world problems
