FLL Challenge Season Challenge Information

This Year’s Challenge Theme (2021-2022) – CARGO CONNECT!

  • Ever wonder what it takes to get your brand new LEGO set from the screen to your house? All types of cargo (products, people and LEGO) gets moved across the world using some type of transportation. This can be done in many ways; trucks, trains, planes, ships, drones, and more help us get things from point A to point B. This season we will explore what goes into transportation and how we can make it better. Will you build the next earth friendly car? Or maybe create a low waste packaging system? Join us this season as we drive FIRST FORWARD: Full Speed Ahead! Offical registration open now!

Season Game Table and Robot Rounds

The Robot Game Table contains 17 different season related tasks that your team can complete. Remember, the tasks range in difficulty and point values. It is a good idea to strategize what tasks your robot will try to complete in a 2 minute and 30 second robot round.
