FIRST LEGO League WA
Over two school terms, teams of students (ages 9-16) engage in two STEM problem-solving challenges. The Robot Challenge is building and programming a LEGO robot that completes missions on a field. The Innovation Project is to identify and solve a real-world problem. Both challenges are undertaken with positive, collaborative principles that are celebrated at the high-energy, end-of-season competitions.
2022 marks the 10th anniversary of FLL in WA. The program has grown from a small event for 56 students, and now culminates in multiple, day-long qualifying competitions and one State finals competition involving over 15,000 students, teachers, mentors and engaged local community members.
The 2022 FLL Teaser Video was released on the 24th of April, check it out!
FLL Education Research
An experienced teacher and FLL Coach, Michael Graffin is currently undertaking his Master of Philosophy in Education at Curtin University. He is investigating how students develop their collaboration and communication skills by being a part of FLL. If you are interested in following his academic journey, we have created a Linkedin group to share resources and news.
