What is 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 inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them. Just like FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®), this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the Jr.FLL Core Values, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review.
Each yearly Challenge has two parts, the LEGO Model and the Show Me Poster. Working in teams of two to six children and guided by at least one adult coach, teams work to complete the Challenge.
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 and/or organize events in their communities. We provide teams (in the U.S. and Canada) with an Event Guide which can be scaled to meet your needs.
