Welcome to FLL Challenge
FLL Challenge is a FIRST Robotics program for 4th-5th graders. “Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students engage in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering – building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game.”
Bloomfield Hills has multiple FLL teams across the district and teams are formed based on which school a student attends. Typically teams are between 8-10 students and we try to keep friends together! Students at this level have the opportunity to compete against other teams in the area.
It is important for any robotics family (new or returning) to join our email list. We send monthly newsletters, information on how to register for the robotics season, summer camp and more. Be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already and share this page with any BHSD family interested in robotics. Contact us at email@example.com
Team registration is limited. You don’t want to miss the registration window this spring to ensure you have a spot on a team. Our monthly newsletter will have up-to-date information about registration, so please subscribe above. When registration opens in late April, you will also find the link here!
FLL Challenge Coaches should check the Coaches Corner below regularly. All coaches should receive an email in July with a password to access the resources and training.

As a parent, the most important fact you need to know is that even if you are new to the FIRST program or if you are an incoming FLL or FTC member, you will be asked to help your child’s team. From helping with building robots and programming, to providing snacks, organizing spirit wear, and much more, there is a place for everyone in the program! Volunteering in FIRST is one of the most meaningful ways of connecting with our children and their friends, and it can foster long-term friendships with other families.
At the FLL Challenge level (grades 4th-5th), parental involvement is crucial. Keeping 8-10 students engaged takes work and requires more than just the coach. And speaking of coaching… we can’t have teams without coaches. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.
