News from Championship

Just watched the game reveal for the 2019-20 FLL, and to my surprise, FLL Jr. Next years Challenge is called “Boomtown Build” and the inspire set is a crane. I grabbed a few screen shots off my pc. Note the full challenge will be published in Aug.

Here is the video from Championship. Most of the video below is for FLL, but JR is also discussed, so you might want to watch.

We are LIVE from the FIRST Championships in Houston, Texas (USA) for the reveal of a new mat and new architecture sets for FIRST LEGO League and FIRST LEGO League Jr., developed to build curiosity around architecture.
