The newest of the FIRST® LEGO® League family, this programme, aimed at 4-6-year-olds, develops children’s STEM skills from an early age!
The FIRST LEGO League JR is a STEM programme for students aged 6 to 9 years. Similarly to the FIRST LEGO League Challenge, teams of up to ten students research a given topic and display their ideas on a 'Show Me poster', and build a LEGO model to help communicate their ideas and program one part of their model to move using a LEGO WeDo kit.
The FIRST LEGO League Challenge is a global science and technology challenge for teams of up to ten students aged 9 to 16. The students work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program a LEGO MINDSTORMS or SPIKE Prime to solve a series of missions.
Open to pupils aged 11 -14 from the Cardiff and Newport areas. This project gives pupils the opportunity to participate in a ‘pre-season’ event, prior to receiving an invitation to take part in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge in the autumn term.
