Our Balby Bots have taken part in this incredible competition. Please take some time to explore their work as they've worked very hard on their project!


The competition: 

FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge is a global STEM programme for teams of young people, to encourage an interest in real world themes and devel

op key skills that are crucial for their future careers. Young people work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.

The Balby Bots will be assessed on each of the four parts of FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge:

Robot Game- Teams build a robot using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® or SPIKE™ Prime kit that they program to autonomously complete a series of missions on a specialised field to score as many points as possible.


Innovation Project-Teams must research the annual theme as detailed in the Challenge Document. After exploring different ideas, they will identify one problem related to the theme, design a solution to solve it, and develop a presentation to communicate that solution.


Core Values- Whilst competing, the teams need to demonstrate the FIRST® LEGO® League Core Values which include innovation, teamwork and inclusion. Being respectful and having a great time are central to what makes FIRST® LEGO® League so special.


Robot Design- Teams must explain the process of designing, building and programming their LEGO® robot they are using with the Robot Game.
