—> Brain Buster

What are the six core values of the Junior FIRST® LEGO® League?

1. We are a team.

2. We do the work. Our coaches and mentors help us learn, but we find the answers ourselves.

3. We share our experiences and discoveries with others.

4. We are helpful, kind, and show respect when we work, play and share. We call this

Gracious Professionalism™.

5. We are all winners.

6. We have fun.

Having trouble getting the kids to focus? Try LSP!

Check out the LSP activities here (at the bottom of page 3). They are specifically designed to get kids to see the LEGO® bricks as a tool rather than just a toy. The LSP 8 Pack & LSP Special Activities guide can be purchased from LEGO Education through the link on your registration page.

–>What is LSP?

LSP – LEGO Serious Play is a way to enhance team-building and communication skills. It consists of minikits containing 51 LEGO pieces and a guide with LSP activities and examples how you can use the LSP pieces to explore challenge theme topics. If you already have a base kit from previous years (or your own pieces to use) you can purchase the LSP 8 Pack & LSP Special activities from the link on your registration page (if you purchased a base kit this year the LSP activities are included).
