LEGO Education and the First LEGO League has announced their 2020-2021 season theme and it is called RePLAY. The tasks for this theme is health, sports, and fitness. There are also some new sets to be used for each division which you can see below.
LEGO® Education and FIRST® are excited to unveil RePLAY, the new 2020-2021 FIRST® LEGO® League season theme, with a short video on social media. For the new season, students will complete tasks related to health, sports, and fitness. Team registration for all three age divisions is now open for the season launching on August 4, 2020.
Once again, students will be tasked with completing a challenge designed in partnership with a panel of experts using a variety of LEGO Education products, including LEGO Education WeDo 2.0, LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3, and the newest LEGO Education SPIKE Prime and SPIKE Prime Expansion set.
A keen eye may notice that with the new season, FIRST LEGO League is introducing a simplified program structure with three divisions: Challenge (ages 9-14), Explore (ages 6-10), and Discover (ages 4-6). While the branding will change, the program’s impact and experience remain the same. Through the three divisions of FIRST® LEGO® League the 2020-2021 PLAYMAKERS and RePLAY season will reach nearly 500,000 children, ages 4 to 16, from 100+ countries.
I recently heard an incredible story that highlights the lasting impact of FIRST LEGO League and how the skills participants learn extend well beyond the season. Started by a New Jersey FLL coach, a network of students, coaches and community members have all leaned in to the FIRST Core Values to solve a very real-world problem and 3D-print personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their innovation and teamwork are driving real impact, bringing an idea to reality now with 350+ members. Together, this group has designed, printed, assembled, and delivered over 25,000 3D-printed face shields and counting!
