WE LOVE TO BUILD AND PROGRAM

Where future innovators practice creativity and team work

FLL Teams

FLL is an international program created by inventor Dean Kamen to promote science, technology, engineering, and math among children ages 9-14. FLL events consist of ​3 components:

  • A ​robot game, where team members build and program Lego robots to ​solve various missions;
  • A ​project, where they research a problem of their choice related to the year​'s​ theme​;
  • Core Values, where they learn to work as a team and to compete in a spirit of friendly "coopertition."

This year the theme is ​Animal Allies. It is ​"​all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends​" and "what might become possible when we learn to help each other​."​

Children are judged on the robot's performance​ at the robot game​, the quality of their robot design and programming, their ​project, and their adherence to core values. More information can be found at​ the FLL web site.

​​

​FLL is meant as an opportunity for children to learn science and technology, teamwork, project management, decision-making, and other important tools they'll need to succeed in the professional world. MySTEM Academy focuses on mentoring the children to succeed, not on winning a​n award. Winning is a consequence of how much effort the children invest in solving the ​robot game, conducting and presenting the ​project, and practicing core values.
