The FIRST® LEGO® League is a worldwide competition in which children and young people between the ages of 6 and 16 work creatively on tasks with annually changing themes. In addition to teamwork and research presentations, the competition also involves the construction and programming of a robot made of LEGO.
The competition combines the fun of technology and science with the exciting atmosphere of a sports event.
Starting at the regional level, the best teams qualify for the next stage (semifinals, finals, world festival).
The regional competition in Dresden
The LJBW is the organizer of the FIRST® LEGO® League for the Dresden/East Saxony region and will hold the regional competition in Dresden on December 3, 2022 in the auditorium center of the Technical University of Dresden. This season, the participants will deal with the topic as young scientists and engineers:
Superpowered! The energy of the future!
How will our energy actually be generated, stored, distributed and consumed? Will we always have enough energy? What might the future of energy production and consumption look like?
In the FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, teams build and program an autonomously acting robot that solves 17 tasks as quickly and flawlessly as possible on a special playing field. In addition to the Robot Game, they will present an innovative solution to a scientific question that they themselves have researched on the topic “Superpowered! The energy of the future!” and on which they have conducted research. Programming and research as well as soft skills such as teamwork and communication are evaluated.
Fabmatics has been a proud member of the FIRST® LEGO® League family since 2022 and will continue to support the regional competitions as a sponsor in the coming year. It’s a joy for us to see the amazing opportunities it offers to young people to experiment with robotics in such a playful, fullfilling and teambuilding way.
We are excited about the competition on 3.12.2022 at the Technical University of Dresden and will of course be there live!
