Overview

What would it be like to live on the moon? The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO®League Jr. season will transport you to a place where you make the rules, learn to thrive and explore all that is around you. Discovery awaits when you join this MISSION MOONSM

Each year, FIRST LEGO League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of children age 6 to 10. Each team of up to 6 children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO®Education Inspire Model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® elements. 

As they work, they learn basic engineering and programming skills with LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 and apply those concepts to make their model move. Teams also document their work in an Engineering Notebook and share their journey through a team Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

  1. Register your interest for FIRST LEGO League Jr.  In early January we will contact schools to confirm their registration.
  2. Within your class create teams of up to 6 children, ages 6-9.  (we have found teams of up to 4 children works best)
  3. Upon completing registration and paymeny in early February you will be sent a Team meeting Guide for the teacher and each team will receive a LEGO 'Inspire Set' and Engineering Notebook for each team member.
