This team-based, hands-on program provides challenging and exciting learning opportunities for young people. MN FLL spurs innovation, develops teamwork and leadership skills and promotes excitement in science and technology.

What is MN FLL?,

The Project. In conjunction with a yearly theme, teams of 3-10 students explore a real world problem facing scientists and engineers today and use their creativity to develop an innovative solution to that problem. Teams will then present and share their work at the competition and within their communities. 

The Robot. Teams design, build and program autonomous LEGO robots to achieve specific missions and compete in three 2.5 minute performance rounds at competitions. Students gain important 21st century skills such as; mechanical design, programming and innovation & strategy.

Core Values. This is how a team functions and works together. Participants learn that friendly competition and mutual gain are not separate goals, and that helping one another is the foundation of teamwork.
