In the 2016 FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, more than 28,000 teams of students age 9 to 16* will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIESSM.

FIRST® LEGO® League challenges kids in over 70 countries to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIESSM season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FIRST® LEGO® League’s signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
