44 Teams To Participate in Kentucky First Lego League State Robotics Competition At WKU

naturesfury wku 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (1/21/14) - 400 children on 44 teams will gather at Western Kentucky University's Diddle Arena on Saturday (Jan. 25) for the Kentucky FIRST LEGO League's State Robotics Competition.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude with an award ceremony at approximately 5:30 p.m. The theme of this year's event is "Nature's Fury™," which calls for teams of 9 to 14-year-olds to research and explore the topic of natural disasters.

Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work and play. Through hands-on experience and working in teams, children have a chance to explore a real-world issue to gain an appreciation for and interest in science and technology.

The FLL competition is judged in four areas: project presentation; robot performance; technical design and programming of the robot; and teamwork, with a consideration of the FLL Core Values.

The highest honor will go to the team that best exemplifies the spirit and values of the program.

Sponsors include:

  • Ogden College of Science and Engineering
  • Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky
  • College of Education and Behavioral Sciences
  • SKyTeach
  • The Center for Gifted Studies
  • Trace Die Cast, Inc.
