The School of Computing at the University of Kent will host the FIRST LEGO League Challenge Canterbury Regional Tournament on Wednesday 8 December 2021, in collaboration with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
The global STEM challenge for 9-16 year olds aims to inspire youth and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics. The LEGO League sees teams of young people competing against each other, to encourage an interest in real-world themes and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers.
In this regional tournament, 6 teams from local Primary and Secondary schools will compete in four challenges, which they have developed with programmed robots while at school. The four challenges are: Innovation Project, Core Values, Robot Design and Robot Game.
The overall winning team will be offered a place in the England and Wales National Final, taking place in February 2022.
