What is the Challenge?
Every year, FLL works with experts in the field to create a Challenge that relates to a significant real-world issue. The end result is a two-part Challenge that requires research to complete The Project, and science and engineering to master the complex missions of The Robot Game, which includes the Missions and the Rules. It’s a fun way to get kids excited in science and technology.
The Kickoff date for the upcoming FIRST LEGO League season is in September 3, 2009. At Kickoff, teams can access all materials related to the new Challenge. They can download the Challenge project guidelines, access the rules and missions of the new robot game, and view a playing field. Many teams gather on Kickoff day for a team party to celebrate the new Challenge.
