Each year, FIRST® LEGO® League designs a new challenge for the teams. Students work together to explore the challenge and to design, build and programme an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.

The challenge is open to teams of up to 10 young people between the ag es of 9 and 16. Each team must have a supporting adult coach. Further information including how to enter a team is available at the UK FIRST® LEGO® League site.
