Welcome to August!

The Global Challenge Release countdown has begun.

Are you ready for the FLL WORLD CLASS(SM) season?FLL_WorldClassRGB

We know we have not provided too much detail just yet (you will have to wait until noon ET on Aug. 26 for the full details of the Challenge), but if you are looking for some food for thought, we are pretty excited about finding an awesome TED Talk by Adora Svitak that sums up a lot of why we think FIRST LEGO League teams are so important to the world (not just this season, but every season).

The video is a few years old, but there are two great nuggets to keep in mind as you start meeting:

“In order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first.”

— And —

“When expectations are low, trust me, we will sink to them.”

Get out there with high expectations and push the boundaries of possibility, teams. We cannot wait to see what you do.
