First Lego League

A great opportunity to encourage children and teenagers to introduce themselves in the world of engineering, robotics and programming. Guided by adult Coaches, First Lego League (FLL) teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. When a colleague of mine asked me to join the local Spanish FLL competition as a referee, I gladly accepted:
