First Lego League

Each January we host the London (East) tournament for the yearly FIRST® LEGO® League challenge.

This is a global science and technology challenge for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. The students work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.

First Lego League

FIRST® LEGO® League is for young people aged 9 to16 years, working in teams of up to ten students with a supporting adult coach. Each year FIRST® LEGO® League releases a new challenge for the teams. The challenge involves a robot game and a research project, and students will need to demonstrate the FIRST® LEGO® League core values throughout all their work.

This year’s challenge is called Hydro Dynamics and is all about the water cycle! More information is available at the UK FIRST® LEGO® League site and information is available on how to enter a team.
