FLL or FIRST LEGO LEAGUE is an international robotics competition for children aged 9 to 16. It has been designed to help children discover and love science and technology in the funniest way in order to gain confidence in their abilities and trust in themselves by teaching them valuable skills for their life. It is conducted in association with the non-profit organization FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the educational sector of LEGO and it has been held every year since 1998 in more than 80 countries worldwide.
