Family Resources

Families who participate together in FIRST LEGO League discover the power of curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving, building the foundation for life-long confidence in STEM learning.

Families play a critical role in children’s success in life.  In FIRST programs, families support their children by providing transportation, snacks, cheering at events, and more.  FIRST is looking to expand the ways families engage together in FIRST programs.

Take your play to the next level by asking questions like: 

  • What part of that activity was hard? Easy? 

  • What would you do differently if we tried it again? 

  • Can we make up a story about what we just built? 

  • How could we work together to do it even better?
