FIRST® LEGO® League Teams

The YouthCode program is privileged to include, organize and sponsor FIRST LEGO League teams for students in central Iowa. Each team consists of six to ten students in grades 4 through 8 and is guided by two or more adult YouthCode.gurus (coaches). Each year teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, water and the like and are challenged to develop and present a solution. They must also design, build and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete against other teams in tournaments on a table-top playing field.
