We getting new generation hooked on technology and IT
We feel very strongly about motivating kids and supporting their study and work in technology related fields and IT. As a general partner of the european semifinale of the FIRST LEGO League in Košice we have provided support to the biggest robotics competition for youngsters between 10 and 16 years young. FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is a program aimed at helping kids find their way to science and technology in a friendly atmosphere with the use of LEGO robots. Tens of thousands of kids participate in this competition all over the world. 15 teams consisting of 10 members each meat in Košice to compete in five categories (Robot-Design, Robot-Game, Presentation of the reasearch project, Teamwork, Overall results). Besides the technical skills like design and programming the participants have also had the opportunity to see how good they can work in teams on solving their mutual tasks and presenting their results in front of a jury.
7 teams have made it to the semifinals, which will take place on 7th February in Hungarian Debrecin. We hold our fingers crossed for them to make it to the final round in Munich.
