In the Jr.FLL, children are immersed in real-world science and technology challenges. Teams discover their own solution to a current scientific question or problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and build a motorized model of what they learned using Lego elements.  In the process they learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the First Lego League Jr. Core Values which include respect, sharing and critical thinking.

A little more about Jr. FLL...  Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-9, Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL®) is a hands-on program designed to capture young children's curiosity and direct it toward discovering how science and technology impact the world around them. This program features a real-world challenge, to be explored through research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the Jr. FLL Values, team members work with LEGO elements and motorized parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review. Each yearly challenge is based on a different theme and has two main parts, the LEGO Model and the Show Me Poster.  Teams consist of two to six children and are guided by adult coaches.  During the season they will: Conduct research about the current challenge theme, Build a Lego Model based on the Challenge instructions that contain both simple machines and motorized part and display their findings on a show me poster.

The culmination of the hard work for many teams is the participation in a Jr.FLL event. Volunteer Reviewers at the event interview the teams to learn about their LEGO Model and Show Me poster. All the teams are celebrated and leave with an award. While participation in a Jr.FLL event is not a requirement, we encourage teams to attend one. Teams can also show off their work on the Jr. FLL Online Showcase.  On the Showcase, all teams can share what they’ve learned and have a virtual Expo experience!
