What is FLL?

So you might be asking what is FLL? Well FLL stands for FIRST LEGO League and FIRST stands for For Inspiriation and Recognistion of Science and Tehcnology. 

The Vision of FIRST:
"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders."
Dean Kamen, Founder of FIRST

And why LEGO? Well, LEGOs are FUN!!! All kids love LEGOs! What better medium to get kids excited about Science and Technology!

FLL is a great program that fosters and builds self-confidence and gets the children hooked on science and technology! The best part is their emphasis on teamwork and creating an atmosphere of "Gracious Professionalism" which is the Core Value of FIRST.

Please see the link to FIRST in our Favorite Links for more information on this great program! There are Teams all over the US - if you are interested, we could try and hook you up with an existing Team or mentor you to start your own!
