Free Savannah FIRST LEGO League Robotics Competition for ages 9-12

Lego Robotics Competition Savannah 2016 Free Come to a free FIRST LEGO League (FLL) regional competition on Sat. Dec. 3 @ Savannah State University (SSU) for children ages 9-14.

The opening ceremonies will be at 7:30AM in King-Frazier student center before the competition starts in Willcox-Wiley at 8AM.

SSU’s College of Sciences and Technology (COST) coordinates the on-campus aspects of the event and provides volunteer mentors to the student competitors. The program is designed to get children ages 9-14 excited about science and technology. While it involves LEGO robotics, FLL also teaches teams to examine real-life problems and develop innovative solutions.

During the competition, students will program an autonomous robot to score points on a thematic playing surface, creating an innovative solution to a problem as part of their project. This year’s theme revolves around animal and human interaction. Players will have to solve various hypothetical challenges like shark shipment, animal conversation, service dog training, animal feeding, milking automation and more using problem solving and robotics engineering.

Winners will go on to higher level contests, culminating in the national showcase.

The event is free and open to the public.
