Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams help us master natural disasters?  In the 2013 NATURE’S FURY℠ Challenge, over 200,000 children ages 9 to 16* from over 70 countries will explore the awe-inspiring storms, quakes, waves and more that we call natural disasters. Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play.  Brace yourself for NATURE’S FURY!
FLL challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers.  During NATURE’S FURY teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game.  They will also choose and solve a real­world problem in the Project.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

*9­-14 in the US, Canada, and Mexico

Important Note about NATURE'S FURY Challenge
The goal of each FIRST LEGO League Challenge theme is to help kids see themselves as capable of improving the lives of others through addressing real-world problems.  We realize that natural disasters happen in some part of the world nearly every day, and they affect many people in unfortunate ways.  For those who have suffered losses in a natural disaster, this topic can be hard to discuss, but we know that many positive outcomes can result from asking a large group of creative kids to solve this type of real-world problem.

As our topic experts shared with us, thinking ahead about disaster preparedness can help a child feel less helpless in a disaster situation and improve his/her ability to cope.  We hope that participating in the Nature’s Fury season will empower FLL team members to make a difference and to feel prepared if they learn about or face a natural disaster in the future.
