FIRST Lego League (FLL) Challenge

Littleton Robotics launched the middle school program, FIRST Lego League, in June 2017 for students ages 9-14 (4th-8th grade). In this program, students are tasked with building a fully autonomous robot to complete specific game missions, completing an in-depth research project on a topic related to the game theme, and demonstrating their teamwork abilities. Our teams participate in a short summer program (July and August) and then the competition season runs August-December. 

We are now accepting names onto our list for the summer/fall 2022 FLL program. By filling out the interest form below, you will be added to our email list to find out how when these programs will run and how to register but you are not committed to the program if it doesn’t work out for any reason. You can expect to hear more details in the late spring. Our FLL programs usually run twice a week in the late afternoon/early evening, plus specific weekends for events and competitions but the specific schedule and cost for 2022 is TBD. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to info@littletonrobotics.org.

FLL Challenge Interest Days
 

Are you interested in signing your child up for FIRST LEGO League but unsure if the program is right for your family. Now is your chance to take us for a trial run. Littleton FLL will be hosting two half day events to help families better understand what FLL is all about. Students will get the chance to either program a robot or solve a real world problem.

Students may attend one or both of the workshops. Limited space is available, and new students get priority. Attendance at these workshops is not required for admission into our summer program or onto FLL teams.

Sign Ups:
Interest Day: Robot (June 4, 2022)
Interest Day: Project (June 11, 2022)

 

FIRST Lego League Explore

FLL Explore is the FIRST program for 6-10 year olds. In this program, teams of up to 6 students participate in once a week meetings for 10-12 weeks, designing a programmable LEGO creation to solve specific problems. For example, in the most recent game, Boomtown Build, students were tasked with designing a LEGO Building that would solve a problem and make life more simple for the people who use the public space! At the end of the season, teams create a poster to showcase what they have learned, and attend an Expo event to share their LEGO creation with the community.

If you are interested in starting an FLL Explore, please send email to info@littletonrobotics.org.

Please note that we do not currently (as of February 2022) have the volunteers needed to run an FLL Explore program, but would be happy to guide parents who want to establish their own. The program cost is low, especially when split among a few families, and comes with a structured week-by-week 10 session curriculum to follow.


Cargo Connect FLL Challenge Season 2021

We were excited to bring FLL back to our Littleton workspace in the fall of 2021 with two teams and participate in in-person competitions. The teams got a late start at the end of September and all but one of our students was new to FLL, but the teams worked hard to learn a lot in a very short period of time! We’re really proud of how they dug in and got to work, guided by some of our FRC students and our new Head Coach Megan. Our Littleton Levers FLL team won an Innovation Award at their competition and our Mechanism Madness FLL team qualified for the FLL Massachusetts West State Championship. Congratulations to everyone!

RePLAY FLL Challenge Season 2020

The coronavirus pandemic upended the 2020-2021 FLL season in a major way! Between Littleton and Bolton, we were fortunate to still be able to run 4 FLL teams that met through the fall and winter in cold open garages and via online meetings. The Bolton teams even held an outdoor mini-scrimmage in early April that included snow and 25mph winds! But all teams were able to submit videos of their robot missions and participate in online interviews to complete their season. Congratulations on all your hard work!


City Shaper FLL Season 2019

All 5 of our FLL teams had a BLAST competing in this year’s game, City Shaper. Our teams were tasked with coding an autonomous EV3 robot to complete missions in the robot game. As well, our teams identified and attempted to solve a real-world problem. Our teams competed in three practice events before competing at their qualifier at Assabet Valley High School. Our teams did great at this event, bringing home the Innovation Project Solution Award and Inspiration Award. As well, two (Wild Wedges and Mechanism Madness) qualified for the Massachusetts State West Championship, Robonautica, at WPI.
