FLL UAE, was held for the first time ever on 29th of October 2016, in Emirates National School – Al Rahmaniya, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The First LEGO League challenge for the 2015-16 theme called “Trash Trek” includes a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, where students are challenged to develop a solution and design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. The challenge is composed of up to ten children aged 9 to 16, with at least two screened lead coaches.
What is FIRST LEGO League?
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
Proven, verifiable impact!
The positive impact FIRST LEGO League has on participants is gratifying and well documented. Over 88% are more interested in doing well in school, and 87% have more interest in attending college.
