FLL Challenge Teams 23/24 Season "Masterpiece"

FIRST Lego League (FLL) teams #1932, #4700 and #57092

From August- December each year we organize and coach FIRST Lego League Teams #4700,   #1932 and #57092  for the season within the state of Washington. 2023 - 2024 Season called Masterpiece will begin August 22, 2023 with an organizational meeting.  For more information email 

Lights, camera, STEAM! Science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) inspire big ideas, bold action – and creativity. Our skills make it possible to create art and experiences that bring us together, entertain us, and move us. We're shining a spotlight on the role STEM plays in the arts and empowering young people to design and build a world of endless possibilities. The future is a place you will create.

This year's FIRST LEGO League challenge is called MASTERPIECE. Students will look at the connections between technology and the arts. Students will use FIRST Core Values (Discovery, Innovation, Teamwork, Inclusion, Impact and Fun) and the Engineering Design Process to design, build and program a robot to complete missions on the Robot Game Board, and to propose an innovative way to share and enhance the story of their hobbies using creative technologies. All their results will be demonstrated in an event of sharing and competition at the end of the season. Spokane Region FLL Competition days = second weekend of December, at Freeman Middle School.
