FIRST Lego league (FLL)-throughout elementary schools
More than 250 students, ages 8 to 14, comprising 32 teams from all over Berkshire County will use programmable robots to complete a variety of hypothetical missions that explore engineering principles applied to medicine. The Berkshire Applied Technology Council sponsors the event, with major underwriting support from SABIC Innovative Plastics. It is based on a challenge created by FIRST LEGO League, an innovative program that actively engages students in science and technology.
Each year, a new mission is issued that is designed to emulate a current scientific, engineering or technological challenge.
The event is free and open to the public.
It’s at the Duffin Theater at Lenox Memorial Middle and High School - in March of each year
