Guided by the FLL Core Values, Teams build LEGO-based autonomous robots and develop research projects based on a real-world Challenge that changes annually.
Mentored by professional engineers, programmers, and entrepreneurs, teams compete with up-to-120-pound robots compete in an arena – combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.
Educational events that teach programming, design, business and marketing skills grow the skills of the teams. Off-Season events and tournaments help the community to grow.
The Windsor Essex Great Lakes Regional is one part NASCAR, one part Super Bowl, and one part rock concert. It’s young people working closely with industry mentors as a team to solve complex problems. The FIRST program challenges kids, teaches them real world skills and ignites the passion that we all look for on our teams in industry. We have supported FIRST teams for over 10 years and have hired some great FIRST alumni. The program works.
