FIRST LEGO League at Penn State Behrend
FIRST LEGO League will be held in Junker Center and Burke Center on Saturday, February 10, 2024, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) results from an exciting alliance between FIRST and the LEGO Company. Guided by adult mentors and their own imaginations, FLL students solve real-world engineering challenges and develop important life skills.
FLL provides students aged 9–14 with a hands-on, interactive robotics program in a sports-like atmosphere. Teams of up to ten players focus on team building, problem-solving, creativity, and analytical thinking to develop solutions to a problem currently facing the world—the Challenge.
Each September, a new Challenge is unveiled to FLL teams worldwide. Over the next eight weeks, the teams strategize, design, build, program, test, and refine a fully autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS™ technology. The teams also do their own research, talk to professionals, and develop compelling presentations related to the Challenge. At FLL competitions, the teams are evaluated on their robot's performance, their presentation, teamwork, and robot design.
Penn State Behrend is an affiliate partner with FIRST and hosts a championship tournament each fall (usually in either November or December).
