Lights, camera, action! We’ll be broadcasting LIVE at the event from our FIRST® LEGO® League UK and Ireland’s Facebook page, so on the day don’t forget to like our page and share the live video so that the whole world can see you compete! Spread the word!

You can help us to generate a real buzz around Animal Allies on social media by asking schoolmates, parents and teachers to follow our FIRST® LEGO® League UK and Ireland’s Facebook page! We’re also on Twitter as @FLLUK! Hopefully you’ll see some exciting bits and pieces on there that you’d like to share.

It’s time to see those robots!

Let’s get everyone talking about Animal Allies on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Share a picture of your robot using the #AnimalAllies hashtag. It’s a great way to build excitement, and it’ll also show the world your team’s creativity and talent. Practice your photography skills by snapping fun and unusual shots of your LEGO® robot, as you may want to take a few photographs at the IOC.
