FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) offers an opportunity for middle school students to design, build and compete with a robot constructed of LEGOs and to create and deliver a 5 minute research presentation on the annual competition theme. Our inaugural Louisiana Regional Championship was held in 2003 with 15 teams and expanded to over 160 teams in the state with 11 qualifying tournaments leading to the State Championship in 2015. The 2016 ANIMAL ALLIESSM season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends. In the 2016 Challenge, more than 28,000 teams world-wide of students age 9 to 14 will
look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIES. What might become possible
when we learn to help each other?
2016 National team registration opened on Tuesday, May 10
Don't wait until the last minute! Registration in Louisiana will close at the end of September OR when all the LEGO Field Sets are gone, which may be earlier.
