Junior FIRST LEGO League is an annual, team-based program for K-3rd grade (must be at least 6 years old). The season begins in August with the end-of-season Junior Expo usually in November.

The Junior FIRST LEGO League is a program for 1st through 3rd graders to get their hands on the robot in a collaborative environment.  Teams of 4 – 6 kids (ages 6 – 9) work together to answer the challenges of the annual theme through a “Show Me” poster presentation and a moving LEGO model using the WeDo 2.0 LEGO Robot and programming language. Our goal is for kids to get thinking about the impact they can make in the world through sharing their ideas as well as getting them building and programming together.

The 2018-2019 Season: Mission Moon

Join our mission into the 30th season of FIRST! Discover your sense of wonder during the 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. season, MISSION MOONSM.
