Your missions

Our challenge consists of the three familiar parts: Robot Game, Research and Core Values. But it's all a little different:

Robot Game - New Mission
Imagine your LEGO robot is an AI of the future, your choreographer and you are the dancers! As a team, programme your robot to the first 30 seconds of the FIRST LEGO League song "Teamwork makes the dream work" and then dance the choreo together with your robot in front of a mobile phone camera. Then send the video to us. We will judge the difficulty of the programming and creativity. You are also welcome to creatively "dress" the robot with LEGO bricks. You may also repeat individual moves in the video. It is also possible to let the robot dance alone in front of the camera. It is important that each member of your team contributes to the choreography. Be creative and show us your robot dance.

Research - Elevator Pitch
Imagine you are getting into a lift and there you meet important decision makers. You only have time to convince them of your idea during this ride. Send us a video in which you summarise the most important key points of your research project in a maximum of 30 seconds and convincingly present your innovative solution!

Teamwork - inspire others!
FIRST LEGO League thrives on teams helping and inspiring each other. Tell another school or class about FIRST LEGO League and inspire them to join you and inspire them to join next season. Send us a video of your video conference.

Feel free to share your videos on all social media channels using the hashtag #offseasonFLL if you have permission from all team members!


All entries will be reviewed by an independent jury and judged based on the criteria creativity, thematic relevance, effort, teamwork and video length. Make sure your videos show how you came up with new solutions and how creative you were. It is also important to show how the exchange between the team members.

Susan Bergelt (38), Research Associate

For the 13th time now, we are organizing the FIRST LEGO League regional competition in Zwickau. It is a pleasure to see the enthusiasm of the children during the preparation and also at the event. We see many of the participants again every year and it is exciting for us to see their development over the years.

Some of them are now sitting in our lecture halls and have taken up studies in the technical field after participating the FIRST LEGO League.

Tim Waibel (21), Computer Science Student

FIRST LEGO League has been a great hobby of mine since I was 10 years old. At FIRST LEGO League, I was able to gather many great experiences that I like to remember and learn many things that I still benefit from today.

In the beginning, I was a team member, but now I travel all over Europe and even to Brazil as a coach, mentor, jurdge or referee and support teams and organizers in their FIRST LEGO League participations and competitions.
