First Lego League is a branch of first aimed towards students in ages nine through fourteen. Participants gain preliminary skills in this field to help them as they rise through the remaining two branches of first. Those participating in FLL use a Lego kit to build small robots. They then use Mindstorm to program the robot to preform tasks. Similar to the other platforms, FLL has a game that changes every year to bring new challenges for the team members.
Team 987 helps by volunteering at or hosting local FLL events.
