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, over 230,000 youth in 80 countries worldwide 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.
