2002 FIRST LEGO League Pages

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.
