General Information

Every year the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) issues a set of challenges based around a specific topic. In 2007 it was "Power Puzzle" about sustainable energy, in 2008 it was "Climate Connections" about our climate. This year (2009) it is "Smart Moves" about Transportation.

As part of those challenges, FLL provides a 4'x8' mat and the LEGOs that are needed to build the challenge items (and the build instructions). Finally, in Mid-September they release the challenge rules and directions. There are typically around 15 challenges, based around 8 or 9 types of items built entirely from LEGO and the team has to build a robot that will accurately solve as many challenges as possible in a timed run of 2-1/2 minutes.

The team's have about two months (until late November) to design, build, and test a robot (made entirely out of LEGO products) to solve those challenges. The links on this page describes the challenges and some of the team's methodology in solving them.
