US FIRST turns LEGOs into lessons in technology and engineering

Another school year, another new season for US FIRST, a technology competition for kids ages 6-18. Teams compete in one of four divisions:

  • Junior FIRST LEGO League, for ages 6-9 (grades K-3)
  • FIRST LEGO League, for ages 9-14 (grades 4-8)
  • FIRST Tech Challenge, for high school students
  • FIRST Robotics Competition, for high school students

In the primary program, teams build structures from LEGO bricks. In the rest of the programs, kids design and build robots from LEGO products or kits.

Registration is open now for all but the robotics competition by visiting the US FIRST web site. (The robotics registration will open soon.)
