What is the future of learning? FIRST® LEGO® League teams will find the answers. In the 2014 FLL WORLD CLASS℠ Challenge, over 265,000 children from 80 countries will redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class – FLL WORLD CLASS!
We are expecting around 90 teams and over 700 children here in Maine, representing 70 different schools making it our largest year yet. Teams of children, ages 9 to 14 will be learning about educational; building LEGO robots; and programming them to perform challenge missions on a playing field.
