Abstract

21st century competencies including cognitive, interpersonal, and intrapersonal dimension have been touted as a key in helping produce students with highly critical thinking and unstructured problem-solving capability. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is designed to teach children to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), and their imagination to solve real-world problems. In recent years, the state of Louisiana, USA, has experienced a steady growth of FLL participating teams. In order to further improve teachers’ adoption of FLL, the study intends to identify the factors related to FLL diffusion and adoption, the benefits that various FLL stakeholders have experienced, the challenges they FLL teams experienced, and the support mechanism that need to be in place to facilitate further diffusion and adoption of FLL in Louisiana.
