FIRST® LEGO® League Explore Class Pack includes curriculum for educators and facilitators to guide their students through 12 sessions designed to introduce the fundamentals of engineering through real-world problem solving. Using LEGO® bricks and powered by the LEGO® Education SPIKETM Essential, students will learn to design, code, and create unique solutions.

In this year’s FIRST LEGO League Explore season, SUPERPOWEREDSM, students will explore where energy comes from and how it is distributed, stored, and used – and then put their superpowered creativity to work to innovate for a better energy future.
