FLL Challenge Teams 21/22 Season Cargo Connect

FIRST Lego League (FLL) teams #1932 and #4700

From August- December each year we organize and coach FIRST Lego League Teams #4700 and #1932  for the season within the state of Washington. 2021 - 2022 Season called Cargo Connect will begin August 24, 2021 with an organizational meeting.  For more information email 

Transportation drives us forward, impacting economies around the world and making us all more globally interconnected. In our 2021-2022 robotics season, FIRST FORWARD, our teams have the power to reimagine a path forward and invent the future of transportation.

This year's FIRST LEGO League challenge is called CARGO CONNECT (SM). Children will learn about how cargo is transported, sorted, and delivered to its destinations. As more demands are placed on transportation systems, the children need to rethink how cargo is transported from place to place. We have the power to build a path forward and invent the future of transportation. And it starts here, with you.
