Arizona FIRST LEGO LeagueFIRST LEGO League's three divisions inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.
FLL in the Classroom (Class Packs)
With offerings for FIRST LEGO League Discover to FIRST Tech Challenge, class packs provide educators and communities with flexible, high-quality STEM learning experiences for PreK-12 students in the classroom or structured after-school programs. Students participating in a FIRST class pack program experienced project-based learning with partnerships involving community members, focusing on rigor, relevance, and relationships. Each program aligns with several national standards: 21st Century Skills, Common Core State Standards (ELA & Math), Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and more. In addition, digital resources are provided for flexible remote learning opportunities. Because class packs are considered curriculum, school funding can be used to purchase kits. Each class pack includes guides for hosting a local competition between class pack teams, engineering notebooks that guide students through the design process, and themed competition pieces.

FIRST Certified Professional Development is an immersive learning experience that will help you acquire or strengthen your facilitation skills for project-based learning and 21st-century skills such as creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork in an active learning environment. Each course is led by a FIRST Certified Trainer and provides the necessary tools to bring FIRST programs to your classroom or as a structured afterschool program. Certificates for continuing education or professional development credit are provided following the completion of the session.
