Daresbury Laboratory: STFC First LEGO League Tournament – Register NOW!
STFC are supporting the prestigious FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) in one of their regional tournaments held at Daresbury Laboratory on 5th and 6th December 2018.
FIRST® LEGO® League is a global science and technology challenge for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. The students work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.
FIRST® LEGO® League is for young people aged 9 to16 years, working in teams of up to ten students with a supporting adult coach. Each year FIRST® LEGO® League releases a new challenge for the teams. The challenge involves a robot game and a research project, and students will need to demonstrate the FIRST® LEGO® League core values throughout all their work.
Teams usually have twelve to sixteen weeks to work on the challenge before they compete in their chosen Regional Tournament.
The 2018/19 challenge is INTO ORBIT. Gather your crew and get ready to explore, challenge and innovate in the demanding and inspiring expanse we call space! The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League season requires you to work together to break out of your earthly constraints. Do you have what it takes to go INTO ORBIT…?
