Los Angeles Region FIRST® LEGO® League (LAR FLL)
2013-2014 Junior FIRST®
League (Jr.FLL®)

DISASTER BLASTER-- Prepare. Respond. Recover.

Can Junior FIRST® LEGO® League teams help us master natural disasters? In the 2013 DISASTER BLASTER℠ Challenge, over 22,000 children ages 6 to 9 from 12 countries will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will learn how science, technology, engineering, and math impact our everyday lives while they get excited about future innovations. Brace yourself for DISASTER BLASTER!

Each year, Jr.FLL presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the inherent creativity in young children. While exploring natural disasters, teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO® elements with a motorized part and learn to present information through a Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under Jr.FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
