Lego League at Highland Elementary


2015 Theme

FIRST® LEGO® League in Minnesota (MN FLL®) is part of an international robotics program that includes more than 200,000 kids in 63 countries. 

Teams collaborate to build and program an autonomous robot to score points on a thematic playing surface (the Robot Game) and create an innovative solution to a problem correlated to the yearly theme (the Project), all while guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements; the Robot Game, the Project, and FLL Core Values make up what is called The Challenge.
