The Bahamas LEGO® Challenge (BLC) hosted the 4th FIRST® LEGO® League tournament at St. Andrew’s School on Saturday, April 9th.
Laurena Finlayson, Director of BLC and the local Ambassador for FIRST® said that the mission of The Bahamas LEGO® Challenge is "to provide opportunities for our students to engage in fun-filled experiential learning, that will result in the development of a love for science and technology. Through this initiative students will develop their creativity and learn to value diversity, in all of its dimensions, while building lifelong skills (e.g. team building, leadership and embracing change).
Teams are required to build their field kit (obstacle course) and build and programme the LEGO® Mindstorm robot. They are also required to research the challenge and make a presentation to a team of judges.
The tournaments are held annually and the challenge changes every year.
