Throughout the season, teams will need access to the following materials:
How much does it cost to register?
The registration fee is usually £180, which includes competition entry and the Challenge Mission kit. EESW can provide support for schools in Wales entering the LEGO League - we can offer school visits and training as well as funding the cost of entry.
You will also need an EV3 robot, which costs around £250 to purchase. We also have limited EV3 robots which we can loan to your school.
All funding will be allocated to eligible schools only, on a first come, first served basis. Only one registration will be funded per school. Second teams may be eligible for a discount of 50% off the registration fee only. Any subsequent teams will be required to pay the full registration fee.
FLL is a global science and technology competition for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. The students work together as a team and explore a given scientific topic and plan, program and test an autonomous robot to solve several missions.
FLL is for young people aged nine to 16 years, working in teams of up to ten with a supporting mentor. Each year FLL releases a new challenge for the teams. Teams have ten to twelve weeks during the autumn term to complete and test their entry before they compete in their chosen Regional Tournament in December/January.
Each year a new theme is set and teams work to develop a research project and program a LEGO robot to complete a series of relevant tasks. Teams meet at the regional finals to celebrate their work and winners will go forward to the UK and Ireland final where a team to represent the UK will be selected for the International competition.
