First LEGO League kick-off

Remember I told you we'd bring First LEGO League to Grenland? Well, it's here! And it's so much more than merely LEGOs and robots.

The official site and information about the kick-off tomorrow at Klosterøya, Skien 4pm tells you (in Norwegian) that it's going to be a lot of fun. A lot of people will get together to mark the beginning of two months eager preparation for the big day Saturday November 7th in Skien Fritidspark.

On that day, youth ages 10-16 will compete in different fields, all based on a team effort. Our hopes are many, but most of all a) to trigger a keen interest for learning and b) to establish a closer relationship between business and local schools and their education programs.

The LEGO robot needs to complete a series of tough challenges! (Click the picture to get a feel for what this is all about.)
