The newest program in Junior FIRST Lego League

Introducing the youngest students to the exciting worlds of science and technology
Just like FLL, this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved
by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches,
students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to create
solutions and present them for review.
Younger elementary school students get to:
  • Design and build challenge solutions using LEGO elements
  • Apply real-world math and science concept
  • Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  • Learn team-building and presentation skills
This program is currently offered at The Cornerstone School!

The First Lego League (FLL) Introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.
Elementary and middle-school students are able to: 
  • Design, build and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
  • Apply real-world math and science concepts
  • Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  • Learn critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills
  • Participate in tournaments and celebrations
This program is currently offered at The Cornerstone School!

“The varsity sport for the mind,” FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules and limited resources, students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
The students are able to:
  • Learn from professional engineers
  • Build and compete with a robot of their own design
  • Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  • Earn a place in the World Championship
