UCC hosts Munster Finals of LEGO League

Students and teachers from schools across Munster gathered in University College Cork (UCC) on Saturday, 27 January for the Cork region Finals of the FIRST® LEGO® League. The FIRST® LEGO® League is a major global programme that introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to secondary school children through fun, hands-on learning. The competition challenges young people to design, build, and programme robots using LEGO. First LEGO League offers a fun way to engage STEM, weaving soft skills into real world scenario's that require coding, researching and presentations across four judging criteria.  Students were judged across four areas, presentation on an Innovation Project, discussing their Robot Design and Strategy, performance at the Robot Game and Core Values. The FIRST® LEGO® League is a collaboration between LearnIT, the UCC School of Engineering and Engineers without Borders Student Society, with the direct support from Qualcomm.
