2014 FIRST LEGO League Regional Robotics Challenge,
Walla Walla University
Walla Walla University will host the 2014 FIRST LEGO League Regional Robotics Challenge. Sixteen different schools from across the Northwest will come to compete, bringing students aged 6-14. Table competition will begin at 11:30 a.m. This year’s theme is “Nature’s Fury,” focusing on all manner of natural disasters, from storms, to quakes, to waves and more. As FIRST LEGO League states on the event website, “teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work, and play. The activity areas will open at 9 a.m., and FIRST LEGO League teams begin table competition at 11:30 a.m.
For those who like hands-on exploration, interactive displays will be available for both participants and spectators, including a thermal imaging camera, a table with communications equipment used by the local Amateur Radio Emergency Service group, a small seismograph, and a concrete tester. In addition, there will be several bins of LEGOs for anyone and everyone to build and play with.
