World Class: Learning Unleashed

FIRST LEGO League (FLL)

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) gets youth ages 9 to 14 involved in playful and meaningful learning while helping them discover the fun in science and technology. This year worldwide, over 230,000 youth in 70 countries will participate in FLL competitions.

FLL began in 1998 when the organization FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and LEGO joined forces to create this unique program.

Nova Scotia Competitions

Competitions are open to teams of 2 to 10 members from public schools and youth groups across the province. The 2014-15 FLL season will challenge participants to build and program working robots using LEGO and prepare research on this year's theme: 'World Class: Learning Unleashed'.

Qualifying regional competitions will take place at NSCC Campuses in November 2014.
