The Program

Elementary grades 4 to 6
High school grades 1 and 2

The international FIRST Lego League competition provides students with the opportunity to explore the world of science and technology through the design and programming of a robot and the development of an innovative solution to a given problem. To achieve these objectives, students must begin by working out a strategy, then use LEGO Mindstorms technology to design and program an autonomous robot capable of addressing the challenges put forward by fitting it with mechanisms and sensors. Furthermore, students conduct research on a problem related to the annual theme and provide an innovative solution.
