When it comes to starting your own First LEGO League (FLL) team for your school, you will need to order a two different LEGO sets.

The first kit you will need is the 9797 (LEGO Mindstorms NXT Base Set), this will give you the "brains" NXT brick and a bunch of parts you will need to build some great robots. Make sure to order the rechargeable battery pack and a charger for the NXT.

The second kit you will need is the 9648 (Education Resource Set). This kit give you more of what you will need to build more advanced robots. Things like gears, beams, and connectors.

With these two LEGO sets you should be able to build anything you will need to compete well in the FLL competitions. These sets can be ordered from http://www.legoeducation.us/
