LEGO robotics competition Feb. 2

About 400 children on 42 teams will gather at WKU’s Diddle Arena on Saturday (Feb. 2) for the Kentucky FIRST LEGO League’s State Robotics Competition. The event will begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude with an awards ceremony at approximately 5:30 p.m. The theme of this year’s event is “Senior Solutions™,” which calls for teams to research and explore the topic of aging and how it may affect a person’s ability to maintain his or her lifestyle. Teams will research obstacles and then suggest ways to improve the quality of life for seniors affected. (Read more about the competition.) For information about the state competition, contact event coordinator John Inman at (270) 745-3048 or john.inman@wku.edu. (WKU photos of 2011 competition by Clinton Lewis)
