It’s never too early to discover STEM. FIRST LEGO League Jr.* is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Then they create a Show Me Poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements. In the process, groups learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking, as well as the FIRST principles, Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition®. At the close of each season, teams come together on a regional basis to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun!
