FIRST LEGO League is a global science and technology challenge for teams of students, which aims to encourage an interest in real-world issues and to develop key skills for future careers.

FLL is for young people aged 9 to 16 years, working in teams of up to ten students with a supporting adult coach. The students work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and programme an autonomous LEGO robot to solve a series of missions. Further information can be found on the tournament website: http://firstlegoleague.theiet.org/about

Registration for the tournament is now open on the FLL website and will cost £150 + VAT per team. Institutions can enter a second team for a reduced fee. Registration fees are paid to IET and not received by the University of Kent. IET have previously offered subsidies to schools on a case by case basis dependant on certain criteria (e.g. have a high percentage of students receiving free schools meals).

We are pleased to announce that the University of Kent will be hosting the FLL competition for the Kent and Medway region on Wednesday 21 April 2021 at our Canterbury campus. This event is delivered by the Partnership Development Office and the University's School of Computing and will provide an opportunity for team leaders to be introduced to the individual challenges (including an opportunity to see the competition table set up). It will also provide the opportunity to meet other key individuals involved in the South East Regional Lego League.
