FIRST Lego League Discover

21459 Brick Masters

The Brick Masters started during the 2019-2020 Jr. FLL season and made up of 6 1st - 4th graders. Their mission is to learn about STEM while implementing habits like communication, teamwork, and problem solving. Throughout the season, they design a solution to a new challenge that revolves around a different real-world theme and create a LEGO Education Discover model and a poster to demonstrate their findings to family, friends, and volunteers. In order to participate in the competition, the team needs to pay for season registration which costs around $99 and includes the 2020-2021 team participation fee, exclusive PLAYMAKERS Explore Set, Engineering Notebooks for each student, and a Team Meeting Guide for coaches.  They also need to purchase a LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Core Robotics Set which costs about $205 and can be reused throughout various seasons. Sponsorships and donations help them pay for the expenses associated with the season.
