FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is a collaborative effort between FIRST® and The LEGO® group. Their purpose is to introduce elementary and middle school students to real-world engineering challenges surrounding a set theme. At the beginning of the season, teams around the world set out to design, build, and program autonomous robots using LEGO MINDSTORM® technology, with the intention of completing missions on the FLL board. The teams will also research a topic and design a project based on the year’s theme, which, this past year, was HydroDynamics℠. Throughout the season, the ultimate purpose of FLL is to help students discover exciting career possibilities and, by participating in FLL, learn to make positive contributions to society.
