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!
A new and exciting challenge is presented every year and each team of four children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO® Education Discovery model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® DUPLO® elements. Working through a series of tasks and challenges, the programme finishes with a Celebration Event to recognise the children’s achievements.
As they work, they develop valuable habits of learning, such as persisting with tasks and applying previous knowledge to new situations. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST® LEGO® League Core Values, celebrating discovery and teamwork, all while having fun! Children get the chance to showcase their learning journey at the end of the programme with a Celebration Event, which involves building, a special challenge and talking about what they have learnt with parents and other adults. Their hard work and perseverance are celebrated with a certificate and lots of high fives!
You will need to decide which Discovery pack will accommodate the number of children in your class and then register your school online . Once you have registered and paid the registration fee, you will receive:
As well as the Discovery packs that you will receive after registration, you will need to purchase some LEGO® STEAM parks which are used throughout the programme.
These are not theme specific so can be used year after year after year! We recommend a minimum of one LEGO® STEAM park between two groups, but ideally one LEGO® STEAM park for each group to make sure there are enough bricks to go around.
