FLL 2016/17

What can FLL Teams expect in this season

Animal AlliesSM

Exploring the relationship between people and animals

Get ready. Get set. Roar! Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIESSM season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends. In the 2016 FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge teams of students age 9 to 16 will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIESSM. What might become possible when we learn to help each other?

FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIESSM 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 30th, 2016 the detailed challenge missions will be published for FLL Robot Game & FLL Research Project on our websites. Sign up for this years challenge from April 4th to Oct 14th online.
