A team of school age kids will represent a local nonprofit in this weekend’s Brooklyn Qualifier for the citywide robotics contest, sponsored by NYC FIRST, according to DNA Info. Students learned to build LEGO based robots prior to the competition, and had to come up with designs that could help simulated people in a natural disaster modeled from the famous plastic bricks. From the story:
The fourth annual FIRST LEGO League pits teams of kids ages 9 to 14 in a head-to-head robotics competition, and one of those teams will represent Bed-Stuy nonprofit DIVAS For Social Justice this weekend in the tournament’s Brooklyn qualifier.
The competition will take place this Saturday at NYU-Poly.
