FIRST: FOR INSPIRATION AND RECOGNITION OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
In early fall, FLL releases a Challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic.
Teams of up to ten children, with one adult coach,
participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game),
developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project),
all guided by the FLL Core Values. Teams may then choose to attend an official tournament.
Past Challenges have been based on topics such as nanotechnology, climate, quality of life for the handicapped population, and transportation. By designing Challenges around such topics, participants are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen Challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM principles that naturally come from participating in a robotics program. Team members also learn valuable life and employment skills which will benefit them no matter which career path they choose.

Previous Year's ChallengeTopics
Can FLL teams help us master natural disasters? In the 2013 Nature's Fury Challenge teams will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes,waves and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play.
Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of life for seniors by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities?
Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of food by finding ways to prevent food contamination? The 2011 Food Factor Challenge explores the topic of food safety and examines the possible points of contamination our food encounters; from exposure to insects and creatures, to unsterile processing and transportation, to unsanitary preparation and storage; then find ways to prevent or combat these contaminates.
