FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is an international enquiry-based programme teaching students ages 9 through 16 about science, technology and collaborative working. FIRST LEGO League is a partnership between the non-profit organisation FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the LEGO® Group. It had its first season in 1998. Now over 230,000 students from 80 countries take part.
Impact studies show that students gain an increased interest in science and technology by working with FLL®. FLL® does this by providing a practical and engaging way of involving students in the subject areas.

CURRENT SEASON: FIRST LEGO LEAGUE SINGAPORE 2016-2017 ANIMAL ALLIES CHALLENGE – Explore the relationship between people and animals.
Get ready. Get set. Roar! Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIES 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 ALLIES. What might become possible when we learn to help each other?
FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIES 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 www.firstlegoleague.sg.
