Breaking news! We're piloting FIRST LEGO League Jr. in New Zealand in the 2017/2018 Aqua Adventure season!

Welcome to FIRST LEGO League Jr.

Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-9, FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. is a hands-on program designed to capture young children's inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them.  Just like FIRST® LEGO® League, this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Core Values, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review.

Team Members get to:

  Design and build challenge solutions using LEGO WeDo 2.0
