What does FIRST® stand for?

For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology

Base Set Blues

The Base Set and all its elements can seem very overwhelming, especially if you have never built anything out of LEGO® elements that has a motorized part. Don’t worry! Don’t fret! Help is here!Check out this video on building a motorized car. Our Coach Resources page gives tons of info on what to do with LEGO elements and simple machines. Also, your base set includes the LSP Special Activities & Jr.FLL Guide that gives instructions on building both a motorized car and chair swing.

**For those that purchased the Base Set in a previous year or are not planning on purchasing a Base Set you can purchase the LSP 8 Pack & LSP Special Activities & Jr.FLL Guide separately from LEGO Education using the links found in the Team Information Management System where you registered your team. If you would like to purchase a Base Set it can be found using the links as well. Remember, you can only order 1 Base Set per registered team.
