Los Angeles Region FIRST® LEGO® League (LAR FLL)
2011-2012 Junior FIRST
League (Jr.FLL®)

Snack Attack -- Keeping Food Safe

Can Junior FIRST LEGO League teams master the science of safely preparing food? In the 2011 Snack Attack Challenge, over (12,000) 6 to 9 year olds from 5 countries will take a “hands on” approach to the topic of food safety by exploring how proper preparation and storage can help keep us healthy. Teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized moving part, and will create a team Show-Me Poster to represent their Snack Attack findings.

Jr. FLL® has captured the imagination and minds of thousands of kids. Each year, the Challenge Advisory Team designs a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the inherent creativity in young kids. The end result of the design process is a Challenge with two defined parts - the Show-Me Poster and the Model.
