What is FIRST ® LEGO® League Explore?

FIRST® LEGO® League Explore is an exciting opportunity for budding young scientists grades 2-4. This program encompasses core concepts from the other FIRST® programs to inspire, excite, and introduce youths to the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math.

FLL Explore teams are formed in schools or other youth-based organizations and are led by two or more adults that mentor the students who build models and create posters to display what they have learned. FLL Explore is designed to build interest in science and technology through a real-world challenge that can be solved using research, critical thinking, and imagination.

Each year, FIRST® provides teams around the world with a new challenge that focuses on real-world issues that scientists and engineers are facing today. The students work as a team to research the issue and create a solution for the challenge provided, which they can present to their community at Festivals.

Volunteers and teachers are the lifeblood of the program – they make it happen. Volunteering with FIRST® Washington is a great way to impact today’s youth in a new and exciting way, and there is a unique role for every person.

By offering a non-competitive environment to teach and inspire youths, FIRST® Washington makes learning fun and ignites a passion for discovery and creativity.


Whether you’re a parent, teacher, coach, volunteer, or team member, FIRST® Washington has your back every step of the way. We’ve built an array of resources to help guide you, solve problems, and make your robotics journey a success.
