Jr.FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is science, engineering and technology program for 6-9 year old children. Students build a display with moving parts out of LEGO® bricks and a Show-Me Poster related to program challenge.
The Jr.FLL program is based on a set of Core Values which must be upheld by all Jr.FLL team members:
- We are a team.
- We do the work. Our coaches and mentors help us learn, but we find the answers ourselves.
- We share our experiences and discoveries with others.
- We are helpful, kind, and show respect when we work, play, and share. We call this Gracious Professionalism.
- We are all winners.
- We have fun!
