Hong Kong FLL Robotics Tournament

The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups introduced FIRST LEGO League International Programme to Hong Kong in 2005. The local competition known as Hong Kong FLL Robotics Tournament (FLL) has been warmly received by local schools since its launch, with over 6,000 participants from 180 schools.

Teams are required to design, build and program a robot on their own in order to complete the missions on a table-top playing field. Moreover, under the guidance of coaches, they have to conduct a research on a real-world problem, such as energy crisis, food safety, trash recycling, etc., and create a solution with the knowledge of sciences and technologies. Through FLL, students not only could learn various concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), but also develop their creativity, teamwork and critical thinking, as well as cultivate their positive mind to face and solve different problems.

FLL (FIRST LEGO League) was formed in 1998 by the LEGO Company and its partner FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). FIRST is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire the younger generation to celebrate science and technology.
