Each year FIRST LEGO League® teams explore real-world challenges engineers and scientists are working to overcome. Each set of challenges focuses on a theme. As a part of the challenge theme, teams will create an innovative solution to one of the challenges faced by society. They will also build, design, and program a LEGO® robot to compete on a 4’x8’ competition table and manipulate LEGO models representing the challenges engineers and scientists are working on within the theme. Each year’s theme is released in August. Learn more about this year’s challenge theme, INTO ORBITSM!
