FIRST LEGO League
FIRST LEGO League(FLL) is the largest robotics competition for students. It is organised worldwide and tens of thousands of students participate each year. First they compete on the local tournaments and if they succeed they go to the international rounds. Each year the tasks are related to a global problem. Within several months, under the supervision of a coach, students from 10 to 16 years form a team. The preparation for the competition includes constructing and programming a robot, but doesn’t end with that. It also consists of many other interesting challenges.
Last year for the first time we organised a local tournament of the FLL competition in Bulgaria and gave the opportunity of more than hundred Bulgarian students to participate. The winner KASAPIN40 successfully went through the semi-finals in Poland, the finals in Germany and last week came home after taking part in the international festival Open European Championship in Germany. There they competed with the best 67 teams from 36 countries.
This year we continue with the new season of the competition and the local tournament, which will be held on 24th November in Inter Expo Center, Sofia.
