  3. 3. There are four levels of robot competition in FIRST... ● Junior FIRST Lego League (6-9 years old) ● FIRST Lego League (9-14 years old) ● FIRST Tech Challenge (14-18 years old) ● FIRST Robotics Competition (14-18 years old)
  4. 4. Junior FIRST Lego League Also known as Jr. FLL ● 6-9 years old ● Use Mindstorm kit ● Brain- NXT brick ● Beginner programming- drag and drop ● Researching a real world problem- central theme ● Core Values
  5. 5. FIRST Lego League Also known as FLL ● 9-14 years old ● Same set-up as Jr. FLL ● We are a team. ● We do the work. Our coaches and mentors help us learn, but we find the answers ourselves. ● We share our experiences and discoveries with others. ● We are helpful, kind, and show respect when we work, play, and share.
