On 9 February, the UAB once again will host the First Lego League, an international tournament in which participants design, build and programme robots using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology. The aim of the tournament is for young boys and girls to have the change to investigate and solve modern scientific challenges by applying mathematical and scientific concepts to real life. This will help them develop skills and competences such as team effort, solving problems and learning to communicate, while at the same time enjoying the tournament.
In 1989, researcher and inventor Dean Kamen founded FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non-profit organisation wishing to inspire young people to become interested in science and technology through innovative programmes. In 1998, FIRST and the Lego Group joined forces and created the FIRST Lego League. Since 2006, the Lego League is organised in Spain by the Scientia Foundation, a non-profit entity aiming to promote scientific and technological vocation through values such as innovation, creativity, team effort and problem-solving skills.
