Rising Riptide – FIRST Lego League – Mentored by Roaring Riptide

FIRST® LEGO® League guides youth through STEM learning and exploration at an early age. From Discover, to Explore, and then to Challenge, students will understand the basics of STEM and apply their skills in an exciting competition while building habits of learning, confidence, and teamwork skills along the way.

FIRST® LEGO® League Season Challenges

Every year, FIRST® LEGO® League releases a new Challenge based on a real-world, scientific theme.

Students in FLL Challenge apply their STEM skills combined with critical thinking to work with a team, build a robot, and compete in an exciting, mission-based robotics game. No experience is necessary or expected in order to become part of this program!
