Robot Programing and Information

Building your robot is an important aspect of FLL Challenge. Never programed a robot before? No worries! It is easy to learn and explore with LEGO robots. Look at the resources below on how you and your team can make a game changing robot!

Step 1: Choose your Robot Model.

Each team must obtain one robot to compete in the robot rounds. Teams are allowed to use different robot models to compete in FLL Challenge. The two acceptable models are the LEGO Mindstorm (NXT or EV3) and LEGO SPIKE prime. Click here for a quick comparison of the two models.
