The Engineers of the Future Challenge is a brilliant new competition to keep your teams thinking like engineers and practising their robotics skills in the lead up to the new FIRST® LEGO® League INTO ORBITSM season.

We are setting you three challenges one for each element of FIRST® LEGO® League. To qualify you must complete all three parts and make a film to show what you have done. Submit your entry by sending us your film footage and a completed entry form to using WeTransfer before the closing date of 31st July 2018.

We also want you to share your films on social media to show the country the amazing work your team has done and to inspire even more young engineers and their schools to get involved. Please use the following handles and hashtags: @FLL UK; @TheIET; @YoEgovuk; @LEGOeducationUK; FLL UK Facebook page; #YoE; #EngineersOfTheFutureChallenge.

There are terrific prizes for winning teams and the novice teams they nominate as part of the Core Values Challenge. These include free LEGO Mindstorms core and extension sets, free entry into the 2018/19 FIRST® LEGO® League INTO ORBITSM season and an invitation to be part of the Engineers of the Future Showcase event at the Houses of Parliament.

If you are a new school interested in being nominated by an existing FIRST® LEGO® League team as part of this competition, please email us at with your adult coach’s name and email address plus your school name and address. We will try to link you with a FIRST® LEGO® League team in your geographical area. If you do not win the Engineers of the Future competition, you can still participate in the INTO ORBITSM 2018/19 FIRST® LEGO® League season by registering your team at
