lego1FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a global program created to get children excited about science and technology. Through the 2010 Body Forward™ Challenge, 9 to 16 year olds will explore the cutting-edge world of Biomedical Engineering to discover innovative ways to repair injuries, overcome genetic predispositions, and maximize the body’s potential, with the intended purpose of leading happier and healthier lives. The cornerstone of the program is its Core Values, which emphasise friendly competition, learning, and community involvement.
