FIRST LEGO League Divisions
FIRST LEGO League guides youth through STEM learning and exploration at an early age. From Discover (PreK-1), to Explore (Grades 2-4) and then to Challenge (grades 4-8), students will understand the basics of STEM and apply their skills in an exciting competition while gaining productive learning habits, confidence, and teamwork skills along the way.
For children ages 4-6, FIRST LEGO League Discover is a playful introductory STEM program ignites their natural curiosity and builds their habits of learning with hands-on activities in the classroom and at home using LEGO® DUPLO® bricks. Learn more here.
In FIRST LEGO League Explore, teams of students ages 6-10 focus on the fundamentals of engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn to design, and code and create unique solutions made with LEGO bricks and powered by LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0. Learn more here.
