The FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. MISSION MOONSM and FIRST®LEGO® League INTO ORBITSM seasons were celebrated with out-of-this-world excitement and Gracious Professionalism® at the FIRST Championships in Houston, Texas and Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Both programs were well represented at the events – in total, 120 FIRST LEGO League Jr. and 216 FIRST LEGO League teams from around the world attended.

We’re so inspired by our global #STEMsquad – here are just a few of our favorite snapshots from #FIRSTChamp:
