FLL Body Forward Challenge

The 2010 FLL challenge is about biomedical engineering. Not only will the FLL students get to solve robotics challenges with a biomedical theme on the playing field, but they will do research on a related problem and come up with solutions of their own. Communicating the problem and how it was identified, the research investigating the problem, and the solution at which the students arrive are all part of the challenge.

From the FIRST FLL Website:

Can FIRST LEGO League Teams improve our quality of life? Through the 2010 Body Forward Challenge, 9 to 14 year olds will explore the cutting-edge world of Biomedical Engineering to discover innovative ways to repair injuries, overcome genetic predispositions, and maximize the body's potential, with the intended purpose of leading happier and healthier lives.

Core Values

From the FLL Website:

The FLL Core Values are the cornerstones of the FLL program. They are among the fundamental elements that distinguish FLL from other programs of its kind. By embracing the Core Values, participants learn that friendly competition and mutual gain are not separate goals, and that helping one another is the foundation of teamwork.
