Innovate, Create, and Share

Engage your students in a range of relevant learning opportunities that will immerse them in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering with FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge Class Pack.

FIRST® Class Pack helps facilitators guide their students through 12 sessions as they develop, design, build, and code a LEGO® robot that navigates missions of a robot game and develop an innovation project solution to a real-world problem.

Resources available to facilitators include scope and sequence options, which feature variations to customize activities to extend learning beyond the 12 sessions using FIRST and LEGO Education supporting materials.

To ensure students are acquiring knowledge and developing skills that are age- and grade-level appropriate, the FIRST LEGO League Challenge Learning Progression can also be used to validate or assess students' knowledge and skills. FIRST LEGO League Challenge kids programming robot
