FIRST LEGO league
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a UK wide programme that combines hands-on, interactive robotics activities with a sports-like atmosphere, using a LEGO MINDSTORMS robot set.
The project encourages team building, problem solving, creativity and analytical thinking by working on a challenge that emulates a real world event or situation. The teams design, build, programme and test a fully autonomous robot capable of undertaking the challenge.
Students benefit from development in self-confidence as well as experiencing that they can achieve more by working within a team. Students also gain STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) skill enhancement.
We currently sponsor two teams, Aquinas Grammar School, Belfast and Dalriada School, Ballymoney in the Northern Ireland FLL competition. Teams from Aquinas and Dalriada get to work alongside our engineers for the duration of the project and attend the official FLL tournament final in W5 where pupils get to put their robots to the test.
