The 2020-21 RePLAY℠ season, themed around play and being active, is here! The challenge will see teams working towards a regional or in-school event where they will be assessed on each of the four parts of FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge.
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 Challenge is for young people aged 9 to 16 years, working in teams of up to ten with a supporting mentor. Each year FLL releases a new challenge for the teams.
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.
