General Information

Every year the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) issues a set of challenges based around a specific topic. In 2005 it was "Ocean Oddysey", in 2006 it was "NanoQuest" about Nanotechnology. This year (2007) it is "Power Puzzle" about sustainable power.

As part of those challenges, FLL provides a 4'x8' mat and the LEGOs that are needed to build the challenge items (and the build instructions). Finally, in Mid-September they release the challenge rules and directions. This year there are 14 challenges, based around 8 or 9 types of items built entirely from LEGO.

The team's have about two and a half months (typically until early December) to design, build, and test a robot (made entirely out of LEGO products) to solve those challenges. The links on these pages describe the challenges and some of the team's methodology in solving them.

About the Lego Guards' Robot

The Lego Guards are currently on robot version number 7 (they've built a total of 9) and are constantly tweaking everything that goes into solving the challenges.
