New Mexico FIRST LEGO League


Guided by FIRST Core Values, FIRST LEGO League teams build LEGO-based autonomous robots and develop research projects based on a real-world challenge that changes annually.

Students in grades 4-8 (ages 9-14) get to:

  • Create innovative solutions to challenges facing today's scientists
  • Strategize, design, build, program, and test an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
  • Apply real-world math and science concepts
  • Develop career and life skills including critical thinking, time management, collaboration, and communication while becoming more self confident
  • Become involved in their local and global community
  • Participate in official tournaments and local events
  • Engage in team activities guided by FIRST Core Values

FIRST Core Values

The FIRST Core Values are the cornerstones of the FLL program. They are among the fundamental elements that distinguish FLL from other programs of its kind. 

By embracing the Core Values, participants learn that friendly competition and mutual gain are not separate goals, and that helping one another is the foundation of teamwork.

FIRST Core Values

We express the FIRST philosophies of Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition® through our Core Values:
    •    Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.
    •    Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.
    •    Impact:  We apply what we learn to improve our world.
    •    Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.
    •    Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.
    •    Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!
