FIRST® LEGO® League - The Ultimate Science and Technology Challenge

Date/Time: Wednesday 23 January 2019

Venue: Great North Museum: Hancock

Gather your crew and get ready to explore, challenge and innovate in the demanding and inspiring expanse we call space! The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League season requires you to work together to break out of your earthly constraints. Do you have what it takes to go INTO ORBIT?

FIRST® LEGO® League is a global science and technology competition for teams of students (between 9-16 years old), to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. Students will research a real-world engineering challenge, develop a solution and compete with other teams (from around the UK and Ireland) with LEGO® robots of their own design to solve a number of missions. You can find more information about this incredible competition here.
