I saw this on my local news this weekend, area students are competing in the FIRST LEGO League competition, or rather qualifying for it.
It’s decision day for many Central Texas students. They have spent months designing and programing robots to make precision movements. This weekend marks the annual First Lego League qualifying competition. It will determine which teams will move forward to the next round. The goal is to get students excited about science, technology, engineering and math.
If you are in the Central Texas/Austin area, and want to follow along, here is the official Central Texas FIRST LEGO League site.
Wikipedia has a good article covering the entire competition, and here is the official FIRST LEGO League site. You can also follow the main blog: FLLBlog.wordpress.com.
