FIRST® LEGO® League: BOOMTOWN BUILD
FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge Class Pack is an ‘in house’ version of the international STEM programme. It gives you the opportunity, resources and guidance to run and deliver the programme within curriculum time or with a larger group of children.
Class Pack is designed for a group of up to 30 children (between 3-5 teams) and enables every child to take part. Teachers or group leaders guide the teams through 12 sessions as they design, build and code a LEGO robot that navigates missions of the robot game, whilst also developing an innovation project solution to a real-world problem. Throughout the Class Pack experience, teams will additionally develop the FIRST Core Values which include teamwork, innovation and problem solving.
Each session is designed to last 1.5 hours but can be adapted to meet your own timetable.
THE CLASS PACK
- 2 x RePLAY Challenge Sets – themed field mats and exclusive sets of LEGO elements to build season-specific mission models.
- 1 x Class Pack Guide – guidance, management tips, and best practices for how to implement the programme and instructions on how to run your own tournament.
- 2 x Team Meeting Guides – guidance and lesson plans on how to run 12 sessions and end with a celebration event. It includes learning outcomes, tips, clean-up pointers, and checkpoints to monitor the teams’ progress.
- 10 x Engineering Notebooks – team workbooks to record ideas, notes, and sketches. Each workbook provides a guided 12-session experience, including an introduction activity, session tasks, and concluding with the teams sharing what they learned and accomplished.
- 5 x Robot Game Rulebooks – everything needed for the robot game. Contains field set-up instructions, mission descriptions, and the rules teams must follow.
