Core Values are the cornerstone of the FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. and FIRST® LEGO® League programs. By embracing the Core Values, participants learn that friendly competition and mutual gain are not separate goals, and that helping one another is the foundation of teamwork.

This season, the stars have aligned and all four FIRST® programs will be exploring space. With this unified theme, we are also pleased to introduce a cross-program set of FIRST Core Values that represents the FIRST experience and community:

We express the FIRST philosophies of
Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition® through our Core Values:

  • Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.
  • Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.
  • Impact:  We apply what we learn to improve our world.
  • Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.
  • Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.
  • Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!
