FIRST LEGO League Robotics Program

NSWC Carderock Division employees support local elementary and middle school students as part of the FIRST LEGO League robotics program. Employees mentor teams of 10 students formed from schools, a group of friends, clubs or organizations and range in age from 9-12 years old.

The league consists of over 25,000 teams in approximately 80 countries. Students learn to program an autonomous robot to score points on a thematic playing surface in order to solve various challenges. Robotics challenges help to inspire children to become future STEM leaders by fostering self-confidence, expand technical skills and inspires innovation.

NSWC Carderock Division also sponsors a competition modeled after the FIRST LEGO League on site.
