FLL PROJECT PRESENTATION TIPS!
Transcript of FLL PROJECT PRESENTATION TIPS!
- Be aware of what is necessary and what is expected by the judges during your project’s presentation.
- Read the challenge over and over again, so you can make sure you are not missing anything!
2nd: Choose a theme
- The theme is usually something that everybody knows, can identify or relate to, because this makes the understanding much easier, and can help you create some extremely funny moments!
3rd: Write the script
- Write the script and try to use different resources, such as videos, live music, etc…
- Keep in mind that presentation should be objective, clear and creative!
- Change the script as many times as needed!
5th: Get external feedback
- Feedback is always important! Try to find other people to watch your presentation and tell you what they think (if they understood, if they have any suggestion, etc);
- Listen carefully to the suggestions, and change some details if your team thinks it's necessary.
6th: Practice again and again and again
- Practicing is the key: the more you train, the more confident the team will get!
- Make sure that your presentation doesn’t exceed the time. If you have any device or resource that needs to be turned on or placed in a certain way, practice even more, so you can do it precisely and quickly. This way, you can avoid wasting time!
- Practicing is necessary to identify mistakes and improve the text, the tone, etc. It is also helpful when it comes to changing and creating some details (such as jokes, lines) that make all difference.
- Make sure each member feels comfortable during the presentation; take into account and try to explore the different personalities and abilities of the team’s members.
FLL PROJECT PRESENTATION TIPS!
- Check out the judge’s rubrics that are available in FIRST Lego League’s website for everyone. You’ll find not only the criteria, but also what the judges are expecting from a team and the basis of what should be covered by your presentation.
Learn as much as you can of it: if it’s a TV show, study the hallmarks, characters…; if it’s a magic show, try to find an awesome number that includes everybody; if it’s a specific movie or a genre (example: Noir), try to find clichés and remarkable moments (e.g.: “I’m your father”, Darth Vader) that everybody knows, even if they haven’t watched the movie.
In the Nature's Fury challenge, our theme was television, so we played with different types of show, such as infomercials, soap operas, news... Here is a piece of our infomercial:
Studying the theme is also very helpful during the presentation: if you forget anything or if something doesn’t work as expected, knowing the topic will definitely give you confidence to improvise something and go on with the presentation!
7th: Have fun!
- When the judging session starts, remember: FLL is all about having fun!
- If something happens, such as forgetting the costumes or the battery for your speakers, don’t get desperate! That’s why improvising is so important! Think about ways to overcome the situation and NEVER forget that having fun is much more important than any outfit!

One more thing:
- SHARE you ideas with the community you're helping or studying;
- Get in touch with people that can help you or benefit from your solution, they can give you great ideas and suggestions!
- Try to find websites and social media pages that have the same aim of your research, they can help you spread your idea to the people you're trying to reach!
before the judging session, to make sure that nothing is missing (this one is very important, eh?)
- The judges are going to watch a lot of presentations, so make sure that yours is remarkable (e.g.: create your own hallmark!)
- If possible, give leaflets or booklets with Project and team's information to the judges and to the public.
