Find a tournament near you! - FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge

At a FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge tournament, you will have a day packed with lots of fun and we promise that you’ll come away inspired.

Teams come together to showcase their amazing work they’ve produced over the course of the programme.

There will be a 30-minute Judging Session where the team will meet with a panel of friendly judges and present to them their Innovation Project, as well as their Robot Design and coding.

At the Robot Game table, you will get three opportunities to score points. Each robot game is 2.5 minutes long, and only the best score will be counted so be sure to come up with a great team strategy.

At the end of the tournament, there will be an awards ceremony. There’ll be lots of LEGO trophies and special awards to be given out, and the ultimate winner will be the team who scored the highest across the four elements of FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge.

Whichever tournament you attend, we’re sure you’ll have lots of fun. You’ll come away having learnt so much from other teams and feel incredibly proud of what you’ve achieved.
