2013 FLL Challenge

When we say challenge what do we mean?  Well, that’s a great question!  Visit FIRST’s Challenge page details.  But in a nutshell, it consists of the three parts: The Robot Game, the Project and FLL Core Values.

2013 Nature’s Fury

Natures Fury Logo SMCan FIRST® LEGO® League teams help us master natural disasters?  In the 2013 NATURE’S FURY℠ Challenge, over 200,000 children ages 9 to 16* from over 70 countries will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play.  Brace yourself for NATURE’S FURY!

FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers.  During NATURE’S FURY teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game.  They will also choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
