MICRO FIRST LEGO League Jr.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology

FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. is an exciting science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) programme for 6-9 year olds. Each year a theme relevant to the world around them is chosen as a focus for the children’s work. The teams research the topic, displaying their ideas on a Show Me poster, build a LEGO® model and program one part to move using LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 software.

MICRO FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. is an ‘in house’ version of the globally recognised FIRST®LEGO® League Jr. It gives you the opportunity, resources and guidance to run and deliver the programme within your curriculum time.

 

It also helps spread the impact of being part of FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. across a wider range of pupils, allowing them the full benefit of what the programme has to offer.

Rather than a select group of pupils, your whole class will be able to take part (in teams of up to 6) and develop their skills across a wide range of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects. Rather than having to travel to an Expo — you will hold your very own within your school!

Expected outcomes

FIRST®LEGO® League Jr. rapidly develops teamwork, design, programming and communication skills, but the most important thing is that it is great fun and makes the children feel proud of what they have achieved!
