If you attended a FIRST® Robotics Competition event last season, you already know how cool the field was. And now, The Mechanical Bulls from Smithtown, NY, USA, have re-imagined it as a LEGO set -- complete with Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers mini-figs. Your votes could make it a reality. Spread the word!
ANIMAL ALLIES Challenge
Coming 12 noon EDT, 30 August 2016
Get ready. Get set. Roar! Or you could bark, quack, or squeak, because the 2016 ANIMAL ALLIESSM season is all about our furry, feathered, and finned friends. In the 2016 FIRST LEGO League Challenge, more than 28,000 teams of students age 9 to 16* will look into the eyes of our ANIMAL ALLIES. What might become possible when we learn to help each other?
FIRST LEGO League challenges kids in over 80 countries to think like scientists and engineers. During the ANIMAL ALLIES season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
