FLL 2015/16

What can FLL Teams expect in this season

Trash TrekSM

Finding better ways to manage our trash

In the 2015/16 FIRST® LEGO® League TRASH TREKSM Challenge FLL teams will explore the fascinating world of trash.  From collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse, there is more to your trash than meets the eye.  Join FIRST® LEGO® League teams on a Trash Trek to discover the hidden (or not so hidden) world of trash!

FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the TRASH TREKSM season, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. They will also choose and solve a real-world question in the Project. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

From August 25th, 2015 the detailed challenge missions will be published for FLL Robot Game & FLL Research Project on our websites. Sign up for this years challenge from March 10th to Oct 11th online.
