FIRST LEGO Leauge
in Western U.P.
The FIRST LEGO League
(FLL), considered the "little league" of the FIRST Robotics Competition,
is the result of a partnership between FIRST and the LEGO Company. FLL extends
the FIRST concept of inspiring and celebrating science and technology to children
aged 9 through 14, using real-world context and hands-on experimentation.
With the help of LEGO®
MINDSTORMS “Robotics Invention System” technology, young
participants build a robot and compete in a friendly, robotics event specially
designed for their age group. The 2002 Event Challenge is "City
Sights" Using LEGO bricks and other elements such as sensors, motors,
and gears, teams gain hands-on experience in engineering and computer programming
principles as they construct and program their unique robot inventions.
