An overview of the IET, representing engineering and the IET from a 21st century perspective. Showcasing how the IET inspires, informs and influences the global engineering community, supporting technology innovation to meet the needs of society.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is the UK and Ireland partner for FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL). FLL is a global science and technology competition for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. The students work together as a team and explore a given scientific topic and plan, program and test an autonomous robot to solve several missions.
FLL is for young people aged nine to 16 years, working in teams of up to ten with a supporting mentor. Each year FLL releases a new challenge for the teams.
The challenge involves a robot game and a project, and students will need to demonstrate the FLL core values throughout all their work.
