They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game.

Things to take note of

The trial runs are an opportunity for you to test out your robot with your coach and to highlight any issues that you might be facing with the challenge board. Any such issues raised on the Robot Game day will not be entertained.

Teams must participate in both the project presentation and robot game to qualify for any award.

Teams that arrive after their designated time may not be allowed to present their work to the judges or take part in the robot game.

Any team with behaviour contrary to the FLL values may be disqualified at the sole discretion of the organisers.

It is strictly forbidden for participants who are in the arena during the robot game to communicate with anyone outside the arena. The flouting of this rule will lead to instant disqualification.
