Current Challenge

Can Junior FIRST® LEGO® League teams help us master global issues?

FIRST LEGO League Jr. teams are about to learn that throwing something in the trash is only the beginning. In the 2015-2016 WASTE WISESM Challenge, over 34,500 children ages six to nine from 18 countries will look at trash in a whole new way. From reducing, to reusing, to recycling, and beyond, find out what making trash really means. Prepare to become Waste Wise!

 

Each year, FIRST LEGO League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of young children. While exploring the real-world theme, teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized part. They will also learn to present information through a Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under a signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®. The WASTE WISE Challenge is available to registered teams through the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Showcase.
