Challenge class pack - FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge

FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge Class Pack is an ‘in-house’ version of the international STEM programme.

It gives you the opportunity, resources, and guidance to run and deliver the programme within curriculum time or with a larger group of children.

Each session is designed to last 2.5 hours but can be adapted to meet your own timetable.

Class Pack is designed for a group of up to 30 children (between 3-5 teams) and enables every child to take part.

Teachers or group leaders guide the teams through 12 sessions as they design, build and code a LEGO robot that navigates missions of the robot game, whilst also developing an innovation project solution to a real-world problem.

Throughout the Class Pack experience, teams will additionally develop the FIRST Core Values which include teamwork, innovation and problem solving.
