FLL Competition Overview
The First Lego League (FLL) is one of four competitive leagues in the FIRST program. FLL is for students in the 4th-8th grades. Each year there is a theme. There are four parts to the competition: the project, the core values, the robot design, and the robot game. Prizes are awarded in each area. Championships are determined based on scores in the project, core values, and robot design areas with a qualification threshold of being in the top 40% (rank-wise) of the team scores in the robot game.

Important Concepts to Teach
Respect for each other is a critical skill that the team members rarely have fully developed.
There are several good TED talks on effective communication skills.
Understanding and appropriately using vocal tone is an important skill for team members to develop.
How your team manages time, both during a meeting and throughout the season, is important. Time management applies to meetings, while project management applies throughout the season.
