FIRST LEGO League challenges kids in over 80 countries to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIES season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

Science North annually hosts a regional tournament in conjunction with the FIRST LEGO League's worldwide initiative.
Guided by adult mentors, participants aged 9 to 14 face real-world engineering challenges. They design, build and program robots with LEGOMINDSTORMS™ technology; learn teamwork skills, and research challenges facing today's scientists. And best of all, learning is great fun while preparing for, and competing in, this high-energy event!
