RWU to host regional robotics competition

January 4, 2011

600 Rhode Island and Massachusetts schoolchildren between the ages of 9 and 14 will compete in the FIRST LEGO League BODY FORWARD Championship Tournament on January 15.

The students represent 59 different teams that each designed, programmed and built robots to complete missions designated by the competition organizers.

The event is aimed at getting students excited about science through hands on experience with a research project.

Each team spent weeks building their robots, which they will now pit against each other in a series of two-minute matches on a playing field made entirely out of LEGOs.
