RoboAlex Center

The RoboAlex Center at the ALEXploratorium offers compelling hands-on robotic challenges. Guided by animators, the participating groups design, program, and test Robots on a special playing field to accomplish certain missions.

Every year, distinguished school groups who participate in RoboAlex center workshops are invited to compete in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) in Egypt tournament.

  • Target Age Group: 8-14 years
  • Number of participants per group: 10-20 students

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) in Egypt:


FIRST LEGO League (FLL) in Egypt  is organized by the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Planetarium Science Center (PSC), in cooperation with the IEEE GOLD Egypt (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).


The FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is the result of an impressive alliance between FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and LEGO Companies. The FLL is an international hands-on, sport-like, robotics program for children 8-14 years of age. Guided by mentors and their own imagination, FLL students solve actual engineering challenges, develop important life skills, and learn to contribute positively to society, enhancing characteristics such as team-building, problem solving, analytical thinking and creativity.


Every September, a new Challenge is unveiled and over the course of 8 weeks, the FLL international teams strategize, design, build, program, test and refine a fully autonomous robot capable of completing the mission. During the process, the teams also search the web, talk to scientists, visit the Library and develop compelling presentations that relate to a problem or opportunity facing the world today.
