FIRST LEGO League Explore

Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-10,  FIRST® LEGO® League Explore (previously called FIRST LEGO League Jr.) is a hands-on program designed to capture young children’s curiosity and direct it toward discovering how science and technology impact the world around them. This program features a real-world challenge, to be explored through research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the FIRST LEGO League Explore Core Values, team members work with LEGO elements and motorized parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review.
