The University of Salamanca will celebrate the I First Lego League event which is being organized by the Science Park and which will take place on the 25th of February in the Hospedería Fonseca (guesthouse) Building.

First Lego League is an international program which encourages passion for science and technology in children between the ages of 10 and 16 on the basis of different learning experiences and which is celebrated in 88 countries of the world. In Spain, more than 12.000 children will work in a group in order to design, construct and program a robot, they will also develop a scientific project which will give a solution to a concrete problem that they themselves identify. These teams will present their solution proposals at the corresponding qualifying tournament. In the FLL-Salamanca, 22 teams will participate, 18 of them in the FLL category (10-16 years old) and 4 in the Junior category (6-9 years old). In total 220 children, will present their Scientific Projects, they will develop the Robot Game and will show how they do it (Core Values). The most important part is all that the children learn and discover through that experience. For that reason, FIRST LEGO League is much more than robots!
