Jr.FLL Quick Facts 

jrFLL Logo

Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL) is an exciting opportunity for the youngest budding scientists. It encompasses the core concepts of all FIRST programs; to inspire, excite, and introduce kids to the wonders of science, technology, and engineering.


  • Teaches the benefits of teamwork
  • Sparks initial interest in science and technology
  • Introduces basic design skills through a hands-on approach with the familiarity and fun of LEGO building
  • Provides a culture of sharing and learning from others

The goal of Jr.FLL is to provide an experience that will capture young children's inherent curiosity and creativity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them through understanding, thought, planning, and technology.

How it works

This is a very simple and low overhead event. Our goal is for your students to have a rewarding opportunity to investigate a science and technology related theme. A Jr.FLL team will

  • Receive a challenge (based on the FLL theme)
  • Research and build their project with Legos
  • Create a Show-Me-Board display
  • Have their project reviewed at an exposition

Teams are children from 6 to 9 yrs old. The upper age of 9 is a hard rule. The lower age of 6 is a soft rule. More information is available on the International Jr. FLL website.
