Teams of up to ten children complete a themed project and a set of robot challenges and they follow the core values of the FIRST LEGO League.
The theme for this year is Trash Trek and the challenge resources are now available so teams can start their preparations.

For the project, teams will need to come up with their own problem related to dealing with trash and then they will need to engineer a solution.
Then teams will need to come up with solutions to a series of environmentally themed robot challenges. They will need to use LEGO Mindstorms to build an autonomous robot that can solve the Trash Trek missions.
