Texas A&M FIRST Robotics Program


FLL introduces students from ages 9-13 to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FIRST LEGO League teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society.

Junior FIRST LEGO League

For children ages 6-9, Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL®) captures young children's curiosity and directs it toward discovering the wonders of science and technology. This program features a real-world scientific concept to be explored through research, teamwork, construction, and imagination.

The Texas A&M University College of Engineering at Texas A&M hosts informational sessions for Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr. FLL) and FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL). These meetings serve as a starting point for kids and parents interested in forming teams for the upcoming season.

We will discuss how programs like Jr. FLL and FLL excite teams to work with LEGO® elements and motorized parts, while building ideas and concepts to present for review at a sporting-style event.

Jr. FLL is for 6- to 9-year-olds or 1st - 3rd grade students and FLL is for 9- to 13-year-olds or 4th – 8th grade students.

These are programs designed to engage young students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Guided by adult coaches and mentors, Jr. FLL and FLL are great options for an after-school program. Teams can be formed within Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4-H, schools, neighborhoods, or any other groups.

Our next Howdy FLL Jr. Expo and FLL Qualifier will be January 24, 2017.
