The FIRST LEGO League tournament was held on our campus on Sunday, December 9 at the Maurice Stokes Athletic Center/DeGol Arena at Saint Francis University. Doors opened at 12:00 PM. Competition began at 1:00 PM. This international tournament for students in grades 4-8 was designed as an introduction to the NXT LEGO Mindstorm Robot kit. All were able to see firsthand the students' creations using the theme "Senior Solutions." We had 15 teams register (with 10 students per team!) Southwest/Central PA Championship date will be announced in the fall of 2013. You can find information about this year's challenge, Nature's Fury, by visiting FIRST LEGO League.
