First LEGO League Food Factor Competition

On Saturday, January 21, from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at The Hockaday School (11600 Welch Rd., Dallas) 50 qualifying teams of youth will compete in a VERY cool LEGO robotics competition.  The theme – Food Safety.  The engineers in training have been studying, dissecting and analyzing food safety – from farming and harvest, to supply and distribution, to maintaining food freshness and quality.  Now they will present their innovative solution to a contamination or spoiling problem they have identified and build a LEGO robot to perform up to 15 missions such as pollution reversal, food storage, distant travel, and even good bacteria.  This is a competition I think my husband would even be thrilled to participate in.  These kids have put in a ton of work and it all boils down to the competition on Saturday, January 21.

The tournament is free and open to the public.  I know my son would love see the robotic competitions (and being a bit of a food snob, I would love to see the presentations 🙂 ).  The tournament is produced by the Museum of Nature & Science and presented by Lockheed Martin.  If you can make it down there and show you’re support I know the kids would be thrilled.  The top team from this regional competition will advance to the World Festival in St. Louis, MO, on April 25 – 28.  How cool is that?
