FIRST Lego League

Since 2012, Tech Eagles has sponsored local teams in FIRST Lego League.

Every year, we take delight in watching these kids get excited about science and technology as they work together to solve challenges.

This section of our website is dedicated to cheering for the teams that we sponsor and encouraging other businesses to support FIRST Lego League, an excellent non-profit organization which is making leaps and bounds in STEM Education.


What is FIRST Lego League?

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) 

FIRST Lego League is a robotics program for 9 to 14-year-olds which gets them excited about science, technology, and innovation, while teaching them valuable employment and life skills.

Teams of kids, ages 9-14, compete in three categories. Each team must:

  1. Build a robot, and program it to accomplish missions on the Competition Table.
  2. Research a real-life challenge and create a solution to it (the “Project”).
  3. Learn about the Core Values and practice them, as a team and as individuals.

Teams can be part of a pre-existing club or organization, homeschooled, or just a group of friends who wish to do something awesome together.

Each team also has to research and present a real-world project.
