FIRST LEGO League Jr. Discovery

The Institution of Engineering and Technology

FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Discovery, aimed at 4-6 year olds, develops children’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) skills from an early age!

A new and exciting challenge is presented every year and each team of four children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO® Education Discovery model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® DUPLO® elements. Working through a series of tasks and challenges, the programme finishes with a Celebration Event to recognise the children’s achievements.

The Celebration Event allows the children to showcase their learning journey at the end of the programme. It involves completing a special building challenge and talking about what they have learnt with parents and other adults. Their hard work and perseverance are celebrated with a certificate and lots of high fives!

Expected outcomes

As they work, they develop valuable habits of learning, such as persisting with tasks and applying previous knowledge to new situations. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST® LEGO® League Core Values, celebrating discovery and teamwork, all while having fun!
