FIRST LEGO League introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. Teams of up to ten kids participate in the challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field, developing a solution to a problem they have identified, all guided by the FIRST LEGO League Core Values.
The Challenge: Hydrodynamics
On your mark, get set, flow! Drink in the 2017/2018 HYDRO DYNAMICS season and learn all about water - how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. In the 2017/18 FIRST LEGO League Challenge, students age 9 to 16 from 80 countries will make a splash with HYDRO DYNAMICS. What might become possible when we understand what happens to our water?
