FIRST® LEGO® League offers an opportunity for middle school students to design, build and compete with a robot constructed of LEGOs and to create and deliver a 5 minute research presentation on the annual competition theme. Our inaugural Louisiana Regional Championship was held in 2003 with 15 teams, and expanded to over 124 teams in the state with 10 qualifying tournaments leading to the State Championship in 2016. The 2017 ANIMAL ALLIESSM season is all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. In the 2017/2018 FIRST® LEGO® League
Challenge, students age 9 to 16 (14 in US and Canada) from 80 countries will make a splash
with HYDRO DYNAMICS. What might become possible when we understand what
happens to our water?
2017 National team registration for Louisiana teams will close at the end of September OR when all the LEGO Field Sets are gone, which may be earlier.
