    Date published: 1 August 2017

    An Introductory Session on Egypt FIRST LEGO League Jr. (FLL Jr.) competition will be held on August 1-3 at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA), under this year's theme “Aqua Adventure Challenge”. The Session aims to explain details of the competition and respond to participants' questions and let them learn how to participate in FLL Jr. Participation in the session is available to all individuals, schools, centers and parents interested in taking part in the competition.

    The challenge aims to provide many solutions and innovations that will help solve water problems after introducing the significance of water. FLL Jr. Egypt championship will hold by the end of January 2018 at the BA, while the Arab championship will be held in March 2018 in Sharm el-Sheikh and the world championship will take place in the United States in April 2018.

    FLL JR. is the first competition in the world in the field of scientific research, robot designing and programming for primary school students between 6 and 10 years old, where thousands of children from across the world take part. The Competition idea is to present real problems facing our world today, where young participants find solutions through conducting scientific research on the Competition’s theme, designing and programming a moving robot model and presenting search results on a “Show Me” poster that each team designs.

    FIRST is the oldest and largest student robotics program in the world. More than 25 years ago, FIRST became a game changer in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) world. For years, FIRST teams have celebrated engineering and technology at the FIRST Championship. This year, more than 50 countries are joining at the FIRST Championship.
