The FIRST® LEGO® League challenges children to investigate the social role of engineering and technology through various assignments. Four weeks after the first region final in Fryslân - in Drachten - organizers ROC Friese Poort, CSG Liudger and NHL Stenden welcomed over 140 young LEGO builders to Rengerslaan 10 in Leeuwarden.
In the morning, the fourteen teams started the competitions with their self-programmed LEGO robots. The results consisted of the accumulated scores of the table competitions (getting as many points as possible by executing the missions correctly in 2.5 minutes), the innovation project (assessment by the jury), robot presentation (assessment by the jury) and the core values (cooperation and presentation of the team).
Also a lot of visitors
The event was not only attended by fanatical participants: the event was also well attended by supportive (grand) parents, brothers and sisters. And visitors who just love LEGO. They watched the games, but could also participate in activities themselves. From an Xbox, green screen, ozobots and VR glasses to generating energy with a hydrogen bike from the Gasunie.
