Trash Trek 

We’re not talking trash – we’re cleaning it up!  In the 2015 FIRST® LEGO® League TRASH TREKSM Challenge, 290,000 children ages 9 to 16 from over 80 countries will explore the fascinating world of trash.  From collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse, there is more to your trash than meets the eye.  Join FIRST LEGO League teams on a Trash Trek to discover the hidden (or not so hidden) world of trash!

FIRST
LEGO League (FLL®) challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers.  During the TRASH TREK season, teams will choose and solve a real-world trash problem in the Project.  They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®. Team registration is now open on the 
FIRST® web site. See the Challenge. Register a team Here. Watch Video
