FLL Lego Robotics Lincoln Regional 2011

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the First Lego League (FLL) Lincoln Regional Tournament that was held in Lincoln, Nebraska at the UNL East Campus. In this tournament there were several teams all competing for the chance to make it to the State Tournament.

So what is Lego Robotics? That's a great question! I don't claim to be an expert by any means but here is a quick rundown.

Teams of Middle School kids have to build a Lego robot and program it to complete certain tasks in a certain amount of time. And each year teams have a different overall theme for their project and tasks that need to be completed. (i.e. this year's theme was food safety). This is a very simplistic overview of the league and what the kids need to do for their project because there is so much more involved.

Regardless, the event was a lot of fun to attend and the kids looked to be learning how to work together as a team and more importantly, they were most definitely having a great time doing it!
