Welcome to the 2023/2024 Season!

The Future is Yours to Create

In the 2023-2024 MASTERPIECESM challenge, FIRST® LEGO® League students will imagine and innovate new ways to create and communicate art across the globe.  

FIRST®  LEGO® League Explore is for students ages 6-10.  

FIRST® (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international robotics community preparing young people for the future. There are FIRST® team based programs for children from PreK to 12th grade.  For information about all the options available see FIRST®  Inspires.

What do FIRST® LEGO® League Explore students do?  

Have fun while they:


The children will explore how people share their hobbies and interests in creative and captivating ways. They will learn about different places where people share their talents or go to enjoy a show. Experts from a variety of backgrounds are involved in every step of putting on a show from stage managers to performers. They’ll learn how to share their own interests and build a place of their own design.

Create and Test

The children will build stages where different types of performances can take place. They will explore coding and motorizing their team model. They will add lights and sounds to their model to make it stand out and be engaging for the audience.


The children will record their ideas and designs in their Engineering Notebooks. They will share their builds and what they learned with others. Finally, they will participate in the festival, where they share their team posters and team models with reviewers, families, and friends.
